Tysoe



Once again the south wall of an old church nave has been preserved, hidden above a later arcade.  At Tysoe the remains of the herringbone wall contains some deeply splayed Romanesque windows.  The south door into the aisle is also impressive and clearly reset, as are the various quality pieces of carving strewn around the interior.  The fine, blocked Romanesque doorway into the base of the tower to the south as well as the window to the west might indicate that this fine tower with pilaster buttresses is also an early feature.
