Description

The tympanum, which sits below a roll-moulded arch and on top of a scalloped and zig-zag lintel, depicts the Archangel Michael fighting with a dragon, perhaps a representation of Satan. The arch is believed to date from the 12th century, though the north porch was built in the 12th or early-13th century.
