St Nicolas Part Two.

Leaving aside the Norman beam the interior of the church does not disappoint. There are beautiful details from different historical eras.

The first image is the Millennium window by Sue Wallace.




Victorian window and painted ceiling.



Last but most definitely not least the stunning Norman carvings. These two are King Stephen and Queen Matilda



An elf [apparently] and a cat.



Random faces- as ever I regret that the visual joke has been lost in the mists of time.



The Norman arches and some of the details thereon. Perhaps the limpets are a reference to the church's connection to the seafarers?






A complete treat.
