S chancel doorway, E label stop.

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 1. Doorways: S chancel doorway" at Backwell.

Single order, pointed.  The order is continuous with a fat angle roll, tapering towards the arch apex, and the arch protected by a roll label.  The W label-stop was obviously removed to make way for the S Chapel. The remaining, considerably eroded, E head is not integral with the roll and thus need not be contemporaneous with it. Its very simple, sketchy, Romanesque features merit consideration.
