Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: Nave N doorway" at Darsham.

by Ron Baxter.

Segmental headed, blocked. Little remains of the doorway. The arch is of plain, roughly-cut voussoirs with the keystone carved with a projecting head, now broken off so that only the neck survives. The E end of the arch rests on a projecting impost; chamfered and possibly carved with horizontal fluting on the face. A wooden lintel has been inserted below the impost, extending beyond the ends of the arch at either end. The area between lintel and arch is filled with flints and other rubble in mortar. Below the lintel the opening has been filled with brick.
