S doorway, arch

Image of the feature "Doorways: S doorway" at Ilmington.

Owing to later building, including the installation of a later four-centred arch over the present doorway, only part of the original arch survives, separated in the centre by a niche with a cinquefoil canopy over.

The voussoirs has two rows of centrifugal chevron, of the profile roll, fillet, hollow, and are carved lateral to the face. Lozenges are formed on the angle, each with a central pyramidal boss.

The label has one row of chevron carved lateral to the face, followed by a small roll. Round pellets are carved beneath each chevron along the angle. No interior remains.
