Lythe Parish Church 6/7

St.Oswald's church has a fine entrance porch with three coats of arms carved into the stonework. Unfortunately I can't find any information about whom the carvings are attributed to but the porch itself, and other parts of the building were rebuilt in 1819.

Nice example of vintage plumbing near the right window, Brian.
Brian Walbey: They certainly had style with guttering in times gone by Ray.
HDR I think, looks nice whatever it is
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal. Not HDR but my usual touch of Topaz Adjust.

Well the guttering is 1911 (Chad would love this detail) - a fine example of a church porch.
Brian Walbey: I really thought this is a very interesting porch, usually our church pictures on SC ignore such parts of the building.
a fine arched entrance. the 3 insignia mean nothing at all to me but look all the more regal and 'important'
Brian Walbey: I guess the insignia might have something to do with past Lords of the Manor or important persons Ayush.
This has all the hall marks of a quality church.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Richard, and it is in a very imposing position.
A superb picture Brian. Looking at the stone carving on the left,is that the Popes seal?.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances. I don't know about the carving although the centrepiece does seem to be shaped like a Popes headgear.
Such an inviting entrance, Brian. Loads of charm and beautiful carved details in the stonework. The windows are particularly eye-catching.
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought it is a fine porch and worth photographing.
You have brought out the stonework very well Brian. An impressive entrance
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Janet, as is the church.
It is rather an unusual porch I wonder if those coats of arms are a later addition
Brian Walbey: Perhaps they are something to do with local squires or dignitaries from years past Bill.
I'm enjoying your Lythe Parish Church pix very much Brian. So much to take in.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Jacquelyn.

There's a coat of arms on the gutterage too Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes I noticed that Chris, I might investigate further for my own interest who they might belong to.
Impressive stone work - beautiful image!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
Impressive frontage Brian, lovely old colours in the stones.
Brian Walbey: I thought it a very impressive, to use your word, porch Sheila.
