Frampton on Severn - Gloucestershire

By VincentChristopher
We took a short drive to Frampton on Severn and explored The church alongside the Sharpness Canal .
A pleasant autumn morning with the sun out ..... captured the main entrance to the church which has a double door to the foyer entrance .

The sum camE out and gave some shadows from the trees

Hope you like

Interesting to see. double door used in a church----I am used to seeing them in barns, perhaps also in a farm house mud room.

It is a lovely and informative image!

Itís prob to keep the leaves and any animals out of the entrance ....the door is half a door with steel structure above which is effectively open

I have never seen double doors in church before either Vince.
Often used in old farm house in Norway.
Looks like a exciting place and a fine day Vince.
Lovely photo!

They appear to be more common in the South ....for sure back home Up North our old Family Saxon Church had no additional door

Think these doors were created during 17th century Civil War period - more down south yes. You could have the bottom one securely bolted, but see out and possibly even fire a musket from. Troubled times those were.
Looks a lovely old church though, older than the door.

From a Civil War TV documentary....
“Cathedrals and churches were elaborate and brightly coloured before much of the interior decoration and original medieval art was destroyed during the Reformation and the Civil War. During the Civil War, cathedrals were used as garrisons, prisons and even stables. Now only traces remain of the vibrant colours that were often whitewashed out of existence”
