That Leads To Your Door

Upwaltham, West Sussex, United Kingdom

Caption: The early Norman church dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin is just over nine hundred years old, and remains little altered in size and structure, although the windows are not original, some being medieval and some Victorian. The three foot (90 cm) thick walls are of stone and downland flint. In Norman style the church has a tall narrow nave and a rounded apse chancel for the alter. The original round Norman chancel arch, between nave and chancel, was replaced after about 100 years by a wider pointed arch. The south door was rebuilt when the church was about 200 years old, and the porch in the nineteenth century. The floor tiling is Victorian. The stone font at the west end of the nave is as old as the church. In the chancel there is a piscina, a small sink for washing communion vessels, which appears to be made from a reused Norman column capital. Parish records of births and deaths from 1592 are held by the West Sussex Record Office.In Hdr

I had for some time been meaning to take this shot, got the right weather conditions this day, whilst on my way elsewhere, so stopped for a while to soak it all in.Some of the newer stones can be read but the older ones are more difficult, but vague words can be made out.Thank you for your interest.
