Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: S doorway to chancel" at Kirkby Lonsdale.
by James Cameron.
The second S doorway is set in the outer S aisle, but was probably part of the original, unaisled termination of the Norman church. It has flanking free-standing shafts on standard bases (all replaced); the original capitals have acanthus volutes that suggest a transitional, Gothic date of c.1200, later than both the western portions of the main arcades inside, but earlier than the eastern arcades.
