Photo of Cuddesdon Church

West Portal (c.1180)

Late Norman west portal with arch of three carved orders: the inner one left plain; the middle one with roll-molding and dogtooth; and the outer one a band of lozenges with cut-out centers. All are under a hood with stops featuring squarish beasts' heads. The capitals mark the transition from Late Norman stylized leaves to the freer Early English stiff-leaf decoration. Church of All Saints, Cuddesdon, England.
