Curiously, both the north and south entrances (that to the north filled in) appear 'Norman' in shape, but neither have any stone dressing surviving. A curiosity, because the Victorians were generally fond of Norman. Perhaps the doorways were too badly damaged. You step rather steeply down the the south doorway. Mortlock found steps, but now there is a perilously cambered floor, as if in a funhouse. You step into a slightly ramshackle church which is full of interest, and full of the feel of its parish in the lively days of the early 17th Century.
