Church recess (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

apse

'church recess' is the definition.
(part of a church)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for apse that I've seen before include "where praetor sat" , "may be seen in church!" , "Part of a church with the altar" , "Niche in church" , "room for an altar" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Mail, the LA Times, The Independent, The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, The Mirror and the Evening Standard.
