St Bridget's Church, Skenfrith / Ynysgynwraidd (Doorway)

Recent Photograph of St Bridget's Church (Doorway) (Skenfrith / Ynysgynwraidd)

A doorway where the short person has to do the high jump to get over the ‘step’, and the tall person has to duck! In the past it must have been almost the equivalent of having the chain on the door, for those taking sanctuary inside the church, who wished to barricade themselves in.
