Illuminated by the porch light, this is the striking south doorway of St Mary's church, Kirkburn in the East Riding of Yorkshire. After the church at Newbald, this is considered the best Norman parish church in the ERoY. The south doorway has 3 orders of big columns, volute and spiral capitals, beakhead and zigzag in the arch, also zigzag meeting at right angles, and a hoodmould of oblong panels with beasts, human figures, etc.

Thanks for all C&C's on my p/f.

Best wishes,
Philip

A beautiful stone porchway, Philip, stonemasons certainly took a pride in their work in those days. Carol
