Loose sculpture, chevron voussoir

Image of the feature "VI. Loose Sculpture: Chevron voussoir" at Damerham.

by Ron Baxter.

On the nave floor, W of the S arcade pier is a large oolitic limestone chevron voussoir of a size normally associated with a major arch or arcade rather than a doorway. The chevron is centripetal, with a single roll, double quirked lateral to the face. On the intrados is a hollow quadrant decorated with a row of bosses (two visible on this voussoir).
