St Mary's Church, Upleadon (Norman Doorway)

Recent Photograph of St Mary's Church (Norman Doorway) (Upleadon)

There is plenty for the visitor to see in this church, both inside and out. This fine Norman doorway dates from the 12th century, and its tympanum features an “Agnus Dei” (Lamb of God) carving. The Norman “string course” is preserved both above the door, and along both north and south walls of the Nave.

The original building was of red sandstone, which has been patched over time with white limestone.
