Adel Church Norman Porch (Adel)
Black & White imageUndated, View shows the impressive Norman entrance porch to Adel Church. The church itself is thought to have been built around 1150 with the porch being added between 1160 and 1170. Directly above the door is a carved representation of God seated on his throne. Surrounding Him, on either side, are a lion and a man (symbols of St Mark and St Matthew) and an eagle and an ox (symbols of St John and St Luke). The seven arches are also symbolic in number and design, representing the seven lamps of fire burning before the throne and the diversity and unity of the Holy Spirit.
