Impressive Doorway

This is a closer look at the impressive doorway to yesterday's church tower. Originally this was the entrance to the Nave. According to Pevsner it is a reset Norman doorway with a middle order of arch decoration showing Sagittarius on one capital, and on the others the Angus Dei and a monster. One of the stone columns and it's capital on the right hand side have been replaced fairly recently. A closer look at this tomorrow.


  1. A wonderful piece of very old history! The craftsmen probably never thought about how long their work would last.

  2. Impressive, as you say. I look forward to seeing more tomorrow.
