Taken in the chancel of the medieval parish church of St Nicholas, North Grimston, Ryedale, North Yorkshire.
The church itself dates to the 12th century, with a Norman chancel arch. A medieval grave slab lies beside the altar, with a small medieval brass set into the wall above it. However, the real treat inside is the Norman font, wonderfully carved in a 'rustic' style. Pevsner called the North Grimston font a 'mighty and a barbaric piece' - which I think he meant as a compliment!
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Zigzag'.
