Image of the feature "Doorways: S nave doorway" at Depden.

by Ron Baxter.

Round headed, of two orders. The doorway is protected by a porch that has been converted for use as a kitchen and store, and is normally approached from the nave of the church. The kitchen floor has been tiled, concealing any bases.

First order: Plain square jambs, quirked hollow-chamfered imposts and arch with an angle roll and a hollow-chamfered step outside it on the face.

Second order: Attached (coursed) nook-shafts supporting cushion capitals with angle tucks, roll neckings and imposts as the First order. The arch has a single roll of lateral centrifugal face chevron, with a hollow outside it to act as label.
