. The Victoria history of the county of Bedford. Natural history. A HISTORY OF BEDFORDSHIRE the position of the north doorway of the nave, the west wall of the bay being built as close to it as possible, in order to get as much space as might be in the addition. About 1330 the north aisle was again extended westward, an arcade of two more bays being intro- duced ; this seems to have carried the west wall of the aisle beyond the line of the then existing west wall of the nave, and the nave and south aisle were then lengthened westward to the new line. The two new bays of the north arcade were not set out con- tinuously with the two already existing, probably to avoid the removal of the west wall of the thirteenth- century aisle until the extension was finished, and in consequence the spacing of the north arcade did not correspond with that of the south. The extra length obtained by bringing the west wall of the south aisle into line with that of the north was not enough for an arch of a span corresponding to the rest of the south arcade, and so to avoid a long blank space of wall here a half-arch was turned in continuation of the arcade. The chancel arch was widened at or about this date, and several minor alterations made. moulds chamfered on both edges. The arches are of two chamfered orders with a plain chamfered label, all being more or less out of the perpendicular ; in the west face of the second pier in the south arcade is a rudely-cut niche with an incised cross above it. The second bay of the north arcade has capitals some- what similar to those of the eastern bay, but of less depth, and the springing of the arch is about 2 in. lower ; it is also of two chamfered orders. Most of the chamfers in the thirteenth-century arches are stopped out square above the capitals, some of the stops being ogee-shaped, some a plain chamfer, and two of them broach stops. The two western arches of the north arcade, and the half-arch opposite, follow the design of the earlier b
