St Andrews Girton (South porch)

The South porch...the congregation have been busy!

What is it with the clunky M design? It's repeated twice with extra prominence given to the finials

I am really intrigued by it, despite it being over older less deeply incised marks 

If you look carefully you can see the remains of a shield towards the top, a date of 1663 and a daisy wheel

Lime washing over the stone makes it harder to distinguish what is really there

Sometimes it becomes too noisy to read at all

But it is still very beautiful. It makes you want to peel back the layers.
