St Mary's Church, Dymock (South Porch)

Recent Photograph of St Mary's Church (South Porch) (Dymock)

It has been suggested that this South Porch dates from the 13th century, although the doorway is later - 14th century. Stone shields above the doorway are so mutilated that their provenance is unrecognisable. The niche above them contains the figure of Madonna and Child, fashioned by Mr. Owen Wynniatt in 1927. Inside the porch is a Norman arched doorway, with well preserved tympanum. It is also suggested that this was carved by the same mason as at St Mary's Church, Kempley. [Ref: p.43]
