Project Description

St Mary’s, Little Hormead, Herts: North Door

One of the most important early Norman doors in the country, exhibited at the Romanesque Exhibition in the Hayward Gallery in 1984. Recent dendrochronology confirms a date of circa 1150. In the picture above you can see severe decay along base of door and on the right below where previous attempts at preserving the very decayed bottom edge had failed and were then addressed.
