Southrop


Another simple chancel and nave church, Southrop seems of some antiquity.  The bulk of the nave consists of herringbone masonry while the quoins are long and short work.  The 2 are separated by a fine irregular early Romanesque chancel arch.  There are early Romanesque windows and doors to north and south.  The font is trefoil and amazingly detailed.

A priest lived in the vill at Domesday and presumably served this church.
