Springer reset above nave S doorway

Image of the feature "Miscellaneous: Reset double springer" at Hampton Bishop.

by Ron Baxter.

Set above the apex of the S nave doorway, a red sandstone double springer with heavy angle rolls to each side, and on the front face a human head in low relief, drawn with inscribed lines.  The eyes are oval and drilled and the nose unremarkable.  The mouth has a broad moustache above it, and below it is vertical reeding to indicate a long, straight beard.
