A Christmas wreath decorates the door of the South porch of Adel Church. The roof of the porch has been given a protective covering in recent years. The elaborate carvings date from the Norman period and include representations of the four Evangelists. The arched doorway has clear examples of designs seen in Norman carving, Zig-Zags, cheverons, dog-tooth and beals. The door was remade in the nineteenth century (1879) and is copied from what was thought to be the original. The sanctuary ring was made in York C.1200.
