Gate of horseshoes
Gate of horseshoes
Here in the village of Clapton, also known as Clapton on the Hill or Clapton Super Montibus, is a sight I have not often seen a gate of horseshoes. There is another such at Lower Harford SP 1222 also in Gloucestershire to the north-west of Bourton on the Water but there may be more in other places. The church of St James here has another carved on the chancel arch is an indulgence giving a thousand days for the reciting of a Pater and an Ave. The earliest parts of the church date from the 12th century and underwent a restoration in 1670. Time taken not available.
