Script, by more than one hand, is Caroline minuscule of the pure Tours type, with Tours half-uncial seen in some opening lines: a has two forms; ꝺ and N occur; y is long and dotted; z occasionally has a dot on either side, a Tours feature (cf. CLA 6, p. xxvii ff.); ligatures include NT even in mid-line and or in mid-word. A note in chancery script saec. XIV–XV on p. 230 refers to the neighbouring abbey in Cormery.
