Vestry, doorway, N wall.

Image of the feature "IV. Interior Features: 1. Arches: Arch" at Darley.

by Colin Morse.

An original Norman sandstone doorway in the chancel gives access to the present vestry, and it appears that this has always been an internal door. The head is semi-circular with voussoirs and a simple label. The jambs are coursed stone bonded to the adjacent plastered rubble wall. The doorway is undecorated on all faces.
