Image of the feature "Doorways: N doorway to nave" at Rodbourne.

by Allan Brodie.

The tympanum of this doorway is decorated with an incised cross 0.32 m wide and 0.34 m high, the full height of the rather squashed semicircular tympanum. It is 0.84 m wide. The plain square hoodmould around it is 0.11 m wide and was terminated by carved stops. Both are too damaged to be identified, though the left (eastern) has the remains of ears. The imposts are 0.16 m high and are decorated with a hollow chamfer. Buckler illustrated this door in the early 19thc.
