Image of the feature "Doorways: S doorway to nave" at Kellington.
by John McElheran.
Extremely worn and broken. Magnesian limestone. Round-headed, two orders. Late twelfth-century doorway with chamfered first order and hollow bell capitals. For dating, see Comments.
No bases, chamfered jambs. Stop-chamfer on L side at bottom. No capitals; chamfered imposts, perhaps a slightly hollow chamfer. In the arch, plain with chamfer. The chamfer is quite wide in both parts.
Square block base; coursed colonette; hollow plain capital with integral ring and impost, perhaps hollow-chamfered impost. In the arch, large voussoirs have a roll set in a hollow either side; the hollow profile on the outer edge continues flush to the wall; it imitates a label.
The capital on the L side has disintegrated.
