Guesthouse, doorway.

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: E doorway of thatched guest-house" at Bailiffscourt Hotel.

by Kathryn Morrison.

This doorway has a continuous single order decorated with lateral chevron on face and soffit, and a chevron edge roll. Eight of the stones are in a pale stone, while the others match the warm shelly limestone of the 1930s building. The pale stones are almost certainly of 12thc. date, and many of them display signs of fire damage. The soffit of one stone is carved with a double-headed consecration cross.
