Now who is that, come so late to complain of his fate?
Who dares to tap in the dead of night just to plead his miserable plight?

While the iron-bound oaken door above—to be found at All Saints church, Chedgrave, in Norfolk—dates only to early C19th, it sits in a C12th doorway.
Alas, this isn’t as glorious as the doorway at nearbyAshby St Mary which I featured in a post By the Parishioners Doorway in July last year.
