This 12th century tympanum is located above the north doorway. The tympanum is of round-headed, stilted form with lugs to left and right bearing standing figures. Above the standing figures is an arch of plain voussoirs. The tympanum was originally monolithic but has a horizontal break at the level of the tops of the lugs. The principal central panel depicts St Michael on the left, armed with a shield and sword, fighting a dragon to his right.
