Norman wheel windows are much rarer than the rose design.  The spokes are colonnettes (round).  During the restoration one was found to be wooden and suffering with the ills of ancient wood. It had to be replaced.  (perhaps the wooden one was a replacement for an original broken in the 12th century demolition at Hackington).  The rich frieze is a medley of winged beasts and foliage which merge into and out of one another in luxuriant abandon.
The corbel table of grotesque heads is engaging.
