6b Dennington, detail of loft for parclose of chapel of St. Margaret and the Bardolph tomb.  The loft, built about 1450 could accommodate musicians, singers, or liturgical performances.  Its parapet of pierced tracery is four foot high and the internal width of the loft is two foot seven inches.  Such lofts were routinely built for rood screens that  separated the nave from the chancel.  Most have been destroyed with the injunctions against such screens in the Renaissance.
