The exterior doorway to the vestry.

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: S doorway into vestry." at Marton-cum-Grafton.

by John McElheran.

This is an exterior doorway, reusing what was formerly the priest's doorway in the S wall of the chancel. Limestone.

Of one order: two courses of plain plinth, a plain and chamfered course. The first course of the jambs begins a narrow chamfer after a short length of plain-and-square; no chamfer stop is identifiable. The jambs and arch are continuous and the arch is round-headed. The label is only partial, at the top; it has a rather heavy appearance, but the usual chamfered and plain profile.
