S nave doorway

Image of the feature "Doorways: S nave doorway" at Hartford.

Round headed, single order under a l9thc porch. The doorway is heavily restored although the extent of the restoration is concealed by a thick layer of whitewash. It seems certain, however, that the arch and the jambs have been rebuilt. The slightly chamfered arch is supported by detached nook-shafts on attic bases with concave moulded capitals, thick roll neckings and vertical abaci. The chamfered imposts have a quadrant plan.
