This really is one of my favourite doors…ever. It is a tiny door that accesses the crypt under the magnificent church of St John the Baptist. Behind the door…remember to duck…steps lead down into a vaulted crypt, a quiet and peaceful place that is opened by the Churches Conservation trust (who own and curate the building) from time to time.

The church itself was built into the city walls in the fourteenth century, and although alterations have been made, much of the original character of this building remains.

For me the door holds secrets behind it, secrets that only the curious enjoy.
