Window splays

Browsing on friends photos on Flickr I came across this lovely image of the south side of the chancel at Silchester in Hampshire by Eric Hardy. The splays of the windows are decorated with a red ochre masonry and rosettes, part of a 14th century scheme that appears to cover the rest of the chancel interior. It reminded me of the decoration on the arches at Down Ampney in Gloucestershire a featured recently.
