The Norman church at Iffley, on the outskirts of Oxford, is among the finest examples of 12th century Norman architecture in England. There are superb carvings both inside and outside the church, and the site of a 13th century anchoress's cell near the chancel. The south doorway is particularly fine, with carvings of Green Men, grotesque beasts, knights, faces, and mythical creatures. The interior has three finely carved arches and 15th century stained glass depicting the De la Pole arms.
