Image of the feature "Doorways: S doorway to nave. " at Saxton.
by John McElheran.
Doorway of two orders. First order plain and square; continuous.
Second order has plain plinth, ring and torus base, not waterholding. Detached shafts one-piece but severely weathered - they are probably modern restorations in an inferior stone (compare Askham Richard porch). Capitals simplest waterleaf with integral ring and impost. The waterleaf is thick, squat, plain, slit halfway with a slight bored indent at the bottom, something like them exists on the porch archway at Sherburn. Integral impost thin, chamfered and plain. This order finishes flush with the wall.
