Door without Purpose - A watercolour painting by John W Johnston

Door without Purpose

All Saints church in Earls Barton has a door halfway up it's tower which appears to be completely without purpose. However, I understand that in the 10th century the tower stood on its own and provided a safe haven from marauding vikings. Local peasants climbed to the door by a ladder which they pulled up after them. See the whole church on my Pen & Wash pages.
