Duntisbourne Rouse

The north side of the aisle has long and short work quoins as well as a very rectangular, blocked lintelled doorway set in a very poor quality herringbone style wall.  It has been suggested that this style was used to try to give strength to the structure.  

Within the church is an impressive Romanesque chancel arch and underneath is an unusual barrel vaulted crypt with a slightly crushed Romanesque
above the lancet window.  The windows are deeply splayed and the south door with triangular lintel would appear to be early.
