N nave doorway, E capital and arch

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

by Ron Baxter.

A single-order doorway, round-headed and blocked. The jambs have coursed nook-shafts without visible bases, and are unusually elaborated with angle rolls on the outer nooks. They carry cushion capitals (or a variant thereof) which have been cut back drastically on the angle so that only parts of their cones survive. Impost are likewise cut back although traces of chamfers survive on both. The arch has a heavy nook roll, and outside it is a label with a face chip-carved with saltires in squares outside an angle roll.
