Two Carved Heads & Dog-Tooth Archway

The two figure heads on each side of the porch entrance depict King Edwin of Northumbria and Paulinus, Bishop of York in AD627, who are believed to have founded the Church in AD 627.

The ‘dog-tooth’ moulding around the South Porch arch can be dated to the early years of the thirteenth century. It has been carefully moved at each successive widening of the nave.
