The nave is 5 bays long with very heavy round pillars and has carved capitals. The nave has some sets of three windows on the aisles with small windows in each bay above. A low set of vaults and ceiling were replaced in Gothic style in the 17C after the original top had been destroyed in the 1560's. The capitals in the nave are primitive leaf forms and curves and in one case a double formed pair of birds.
