THE ARCHWAY.


The Archway at St Andrews Church ruin above Church Ope Cove on Portland Dorset.
Gravestones of victims of the Black Death can be seen in the graveyard.
It has been reported that a mysterious cowled figure has been seen passing under the archway.

How old is the church Trevor?

Hi Colin
It was built in stages between 1150 and 1470 when the tower was added.
A landslip in 1675 damaged the church badly and in 1756 it was closed and demolished.
