Doorway in wall.
Queen's private exit to greenhouses in wall of Sandringham Park.
Wall is 19th century brick and carrstone but doorway is in 13th century Early English style, stone, jambs at least look ancient.
Is this a re-use of material from one of the 'restored' churches on the estate of about 1890, of which there are several other examples?
E. Rose (NAU), 4 April 1984.
