Quick Reference

Any part of a building that turns at an angle (usually 90°) from its principal face, such as the side of a pilaster or the jamb of an aperture. A return forming an oblique angle is a splayed return. If a moulding is continued in a different direction from its main direction, as with a hood-moulding over a medieval window or door returning downwards to a Label-stop, it is referred to as a returned moulding. Similarly, the stalls in a church choir set against screens between the choir and choir-aisles and returning at an angle of 90° at the back of the pulpitum or choir-screen are called returned stalls.
