The screen is 20 feet across, with a 5 foot gap in then middle, and no doors. The rood is placed on top. The third row down of the decoration includes 9 angels each holding a shield depicting an Instrument of the Passion. This is the only instance of this feature being used by Fellowes Prynne seen by the author. The horizontal elements are channelled into the vertical structure by fan vaulting. Compare the screen at Buckland-in-the-Moor.
