S nave doorway

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: S nave doorway" at Wolferlow.

by Ron Baxter.

A single-order doorway, round-headed with a tympanum. The plain ashlar jambs are of red sandstone, unmoulded and apparently rebuilt. They carry quirked chamfered imposts whch support the ends of a segmental lintel of 10 voussoirs, with an inner angle roll. The tympanum is of coursed ashlar blocks and is surrounded by an arch with an angle roll inside a row of chip-carved saltires in squares, like the label of the N doorway.
