Only west doorway, now opening into tower, is pre-conquest with rebates and draw-bar slot to its inner jambs; south doorway cut through at later date. Their carved tympana (possibly pre-conquest) were reset in their present position during C19 restoration; west door's tympanum discovered when access for present west gallery was constructed.
