Knocking on Heaven's Door

This is the door knocker of All Saints’ church on Pavement. It is thought to date from the 12 century and is known as a Doom. It shows a man being swallowed whole by a beast. Anyone being pursued by the authorities could claim sanctuary by holding on to the ring of the door knocker….. it does look well-used!


  1. A wonderful object, I've never heard of a Doom.
