The stunning west porch of St Mary’s church in Higham Ferrers (Northamptonshire UK)
Part of the original church, it was built between 1270-80. The roundels in the Tympanum depict scenes from the lives of Jesus Christ and Mary. Around each of the twin doorways are carved Old Testament characters of David’s line which found fulfillment with the birth of Christ, who forms the centrepiece in his mother’s arms. It is thought to be the work of the foreign masons employed to rebuild Westminster Abbey as it resembles the style and quality found there.
