Adel Church, South Porch Door (Adel)
Undated. View shows the door of the Norman Porch of Adel St. John The Baptist Church, one of the oldest surviving parts of this Grade 1 listed building. Construction of the church started around 1150 and the South Porch is believed to have been added between 1160 and 1170. The wooden door is a replica of the original, built in 1879, but the bronze door knockers are believed to date from the 13th century. Photograph by Wormald of Leeds.
