N doorway, general view

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: N doorway, nave." at Hampstead Norreys.

by Ron Baxter.

Round headed, of one order. Chamfered jambs and arch; the jambs terminating in pyramid chamfer stops at the foot. There are no capitals, but hollow chamfered imposts with a bead running along the middle of the chamfer. The label is carved with a double row of billet. This is damaged and misalignments between the two rows indicate that it has been reset at some time. It is possible that the S doorway (see below) originally had a billet label too, and this one uses the best-preserved stones from both.
