HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Ogee south door
A very nice county church in Perpendicular Gothic style (which loosely translates as 15th century). The most interesting feature of the church is a quite amazing south doorway, shaped into an ogee arch with multiple layers of moulding. The bottom ends of the ogee moulding have very nicely carved small heads.
I wouldn't claim that the doorway is unique, but I certainly can't recall ever seeing a similarly shaped entrance at any parish church in England!
The best feature of the interior are the nave arcades, with some very nice carving. There are 18th century monuments to members of the Cartwright family and a couple of very nice 17th century wall cartouches. St Wilfrid's is no longer in use for regular worship and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust, who generally keep it open for visitors at any time.
