I’m back to the churches again this week for my Thursday Doors post with this beautiful example from the 12th century which I visited a couple of weeks ago. As always the stone carving around the door is exquisite and completely different from many other local examples by being spectacularly delicate and classical in its decoration. Not so many monsters and gargoyles here but flowers and curlicues and lozenge patterns – romantic gothic rather than scary gothic! I just wish I knew more about architecture to identify the influences. Whatever the history the church is wonderful and the interior is filled with rows of wavy backed wooden chairs each joined to its neighbour and many still with old enamel name plaques attached to them which I had not seen before. Here are some of the photos for my contribution to Norm’s Doors this week -thanks as always to Norm for hosting this ever inspiring challenge.
