The rather palatial gateway to the church, built, as you see in 1883.

an excellent point of view, Tom. i am a bit surprised with the multitude of crosses.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush - they've certainly gone to town with the crosses!
It looks like the entrance to a mansion - not like a church!
Tom Wilson: Indeed it does!
Très joli. Je n'aurais pas deviné que c'était une église.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine - oui, c'est vrai!

A perfect match for the building itself Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Chris.
Not something one typically sees for a church, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not quite the old lychgate!
An elegant entrance Tom
Tom Wilson: It is indeed.

There is definitely a local style in this country.
Tom Wilson: There certainly is!
Very impressive gateway, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not your typical country church style!
Both constructions were obviously designed to compliment each other.
Tom Wilson: That's true, Brian.
Made of stone, it gives a strong feel of protection, I suppose.
Tom Wilson: I guess so!

I see there is a smaller gate left and one right. Maybe, so that the late comers and early leavers don't hold each other up smile
Tom Wilson: Perhaps they're expecting a crowd!
I like the symmetry of it Tom.
A strong design, in quite a different style
