The church of St Lawrence in Harpley
The church of St Lawrence > Link as we see it today dates mainly from the 13th century, the tower was rebuilt during the 14th century and a south porch added a century later. The south door > Link is believed to probably be the finest carved door in the county and one of the best in the whole of England. It is decorated with carvings depicting tudor roses, crockets and canopies with niches running from the sill of the door with mutilated figures of saints and the Four Latin Doctors. The nave contains a number of 15th century benches with pierced quatrefoil backs and carved poppyhead and figures of animals > Link. Some early 14th century glass can be seen in the south aisle east window > Link and the west window > Link has glass dating from the 15th century. The rood screen is original but all its panels > Link have been repainted in the late 1800s. Remains of the decoration which once used to surround piscina > Link and sedilia can still be seen, as can be the marks left by the picks of Cromwell's men.
