St Andrew, Letcombe Regis


Recommended Posts

A couple of images around Letcombe Regis Church:

A rather curious feature beside a blocked-off door on the North wall:

Was it a wash basin? (Indeed what was the North door for?)

A rather amusing reindeer by the crossroads

Both on 35mm Tri-X in the X-500.

No sign of the Bustard this time (27 Dec).

Interesting shots, could be a wash basin if it was near a door.

Thinking about it, I wonder if there was a vestry that was demolished at some stage, in which case a wash basin of some sort would make sense.

According to this website the North Door was the original entrance.

Thanks for that update. There wasn't much on the village website. Unusual to have a North door, but I guess the slope makes it sensible.

I always like a mystery, so trying to work out what went on with this church.... seems like it was built over 700-800 years with the earliest from the 12th C so any number of things could have happened over the centuries, if there was a vestry over the North Entrance the Holy Water Stoupe at the entrance would make sense...
