Through the Arched Door.....

This rather worn but still striking doorway is late Norman and has been moved from another site, reputedly Holy Trinity Priory on Micklegate, to the base of the tower on Ingram's hospital. It is round-headed and has dog tooth decoration still visible, forming an attractive entrance to the tower and chapel of these alms houses.


  1. It is absolutely beautiful. I'm glad to see it preserved.

  2. It is a wonderful door and its history is interesting too. There us so many more centuries of architectural and other history on your side of the Atlantic!

  3. The door itself appears to be small surrounded by that impressive doorway.
