Chancel, south side, doorway, head

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 3. Exterior Decoration: Romanesque label reused" at Campsall.

by Rita Wood.

In the south chancel wall, the label of the pointed doorway uses two short lengths with a Romanesque pattern at the bottom of its label, reproduced in the four large slabs of later work above. This pattern would match the label of the window on the north side of the chancel. It is impossible to tell what the two re-used stones, now label stops, were like originally and whether they too were twelfth-century pieces reused. The string course in this area is undistinguished but could be twelfth-century work. See Comments, chancel, below.
