Did you look at the remains of the cloister garth at Rochester cathedral? Similar dogtooth decoration plus some gorgeous blind arcading.

I did. I took pictures too but they didn't come out well. Next time I'm over there I must try again.

Give me a shout when you think of coming again- it'd be nice to meet up.

I find it so moving that some long ago person worked to make it beautiful, and they are gone, and there it still is. Dorky, I know...

Nothing dorky about that in my book. :)

Thank you! What a beautiful example of a classic Romanesque arch. This church is a treasure...not many around like it, I think, at least not where you live.

Churches were always getting improved. Patrons would rebuild them in the latest style, enlarge then, add bits on, repair them after damage. As a result there are very few left in anything like a pure Romanesque style. Those that do survive are in really out of the way places- like Barfrestone and Kilpeck.
