St Gregory's Church, Castlemorton (NE View)

Recent Photograph of St Gregory's Church (NE View) (Castlemorton)

The north porch dates from the 15th century, and was constructed from the timbers of a lych-gate which once stood at the entrance to the south of the church. It has recently been refurbished, and a notice outside informs us that its stark white appearance is the result of a lime wash, added to allow the timbers to seal properly. When this process is completed, it is expected that the timbers will once again weather to the typical silvery brown colour of weathered oak - although I think it looks rather nice as it is!
