The Church of Saint Laurence,

Brafield on the Green

St Laurence

St. Laurence

Look over the porch on the South side, approached by the main path through the Churchyard. There we see a small statue of St. Laurence, with his instrument of torture, the Gridiron. Notice also that he is depicted wearing a garment known as a Dalmatic. This is the characteristic garment of the Deacon. St. Laurence was the chief Deacon of the Church in Rome.

a capital

Some of the capitals on the columns are worth close inspection. The one nearest the Font has carvings of foliage in which lies a serpent.
