N doorway W capital

Image of the feature "Doorways: N doorway, nave" at Padworth.

by Ron Baxter.

Round-headed, of two orders. Identical in appearance to the S doorway with the following exceptions: The imposts and label are modern replacements with no carved ornament. The attic bases are original, though worn. Most of the L capital is broken away. What remains shows traces of the furled leaf motif found on the S doorway capitals, but the design was not the same. The R capital is a simple volute capital with a simplified lily motif between the volutes at the top of each face.
