One of twin (handed) chapels: Greek cross plan with added colonade porch to East: South transept in form of an angled chevet; Romanesque style with some polychromy. Corner buttresses porch has semi-circular headed entrance archway with small side shafts; the returns have a semi-circular arched opening split by a column and heavily cusped tracery. South elevation has cusped lancet to 'nave' bay, then plate tracery in semi-circular arches to the chevet, and further cusped lancet to 'chancel' bay; corner buttresses with Quasi-dentilled eaves course . Triple window to West end, the centre light being divided centrally, with decorated capitals/imposts. North elevation similar to South, but with the chevet replaced by flat table with pair of doors.

Although architecturally adequate on its own, its value is enhanced by the 'twin' opposite.
