Saint Nicholas, Walcot: Priest's door
Saint Nicholas, Walcot: Priest's door
Pevsner calls this 'an ogee headed continuously moulded priest's door with crocketed gablet and pinnacles'. And who am I to argue with that?
St Nicholas church, Walcot
Grade I listed.
Dating from the 12th century onwards, and restored in 1907 & 1926.
It has a 2 stage west tower with a tall crocketed broached spire from 14th Century. The tower arch is also from this period. Entered through a 17th C door in the south porch, the nave arcades are 13th C. but rest on even older bases. The font is Norman but recut in 18th C. The clerestory windows are 15th Century. The carved pew ends are 500 years old.
There is a double hagioscope. In the south aisle is a C13 trefoil headed piscina. The roof is a 14th C braced tie beam.
