St Hilda's South Door

By oldgreyheron      
This is the imposing and ancient South door into ST Hilda's church on the headland at Hartlepool.

From the website we read: "A prominent feature of the Headland, St Hilda's church was built in the late twelfth century but the south doorway shows in its decoration that it belonged to an earlier Norman church, probably erected in the time of Robert de Brus II, founder of Guisborough Priory."

This is a truly ancient entrance!

An interesting foreword supported by a very well observed and captured image of the wonderfully shaped and aged Church Doorway.

Wonderful history attached to this remarkable entrance. So many souls have passed through it, it must have many stories to tell. Sometimes in these old churches, the holiness in palpable.

A beautiful and very old doorway, Mike, I wonder just how many people have passed through it in its lifetime? Carol
