Walk around the outside

History of the Church

The west door

Notice the difference between the stone work on the outside and that on the inside of the chuch. On dry Sunday mornings, during the summer, the Choir and Clery make their entrance into the church through this door.

A closeup of the West door

A closer view of the door, shows perhaps why it is used as the backdrop of many wedding photographs.

The crubling stonework on the left side of the door

A closer view of the detailed stone carving in the west door. The Norman Concentric layers are shown very clearly and give an impression of the thickness of the walls.

A closeup of the stonework on the right side

The closeup of the stone carvings give some idea of the detailed work that went into the creation of the church. The right side has faired better in the elements.
