You are right! I wonder if a wheelchair or walker would even fit thru there! They need less archway and more opening! But I guess it is historical and more known for it's artistry than practicality.
Ginny, I doubt they worried much about accessibility for wheelchairs back in medieval times when this cathedral was built ;) Besides, this is not the main entrance, and I doubt it ever was (because the main entrance is usually at the tower end of the churches; and this door is on the side).
Thin people back then
I am wondering if the door was for a special usage… it is pretty, long and narrow. alos it might be wider than it looks, the photo is slightly at an angle.
Church doors are often high. This one just struck me as being unusually narrow for its height and the elaborate archway.
I like it. I used to 'collect' doors - or photos of them but I seem to have stopped.
Graham, I kind of 'collect' doors, too (and windows) - well, not really in an organized manner, but I (and my camera) always feel drawn to them...
