Nave, S doorway.

Image of the feature "Doorways: Nave S doorway" at Darsham.

by Ron Baxter.

Round headed, of two orders. The entire doorway is badly worn and chipped and has been coated with a layer of thick whitewash.

First order: A narrow order remade in brick with plain square jambs and arch and cuboid imposts.

Second order: En-delit nook-shafts without bases carrying worn cushion capitals; the W with a three-pointed knot in relief in the recessed E shield and a worn leaf in the angle tuck; the right a plain cushion with the angle lost. Both have plain roll neckings. The imposts are chamfered with a pair of parallel grooves at the top of the chamfer. The W impost has lost its inner face and angle; the E has its profile surviving only on the inner face. The arch is of worn voussoirs, plain and square sectioned.
