Medal Presentation

Tolkien’s inspiration for Durin’s Door was a little too far away for a Saturday afternoon excursion so I looked for inspiration in ‘The Churches of Shropshire & Their Treasures’ to find inspiration for suitable doorways that were fitting for the presentation of my medals for completing  ‘The Fellowship’ and ‘Mines of Moria’ challenges.

Within the books pages I found St Mary’s Church, Edstaston which has Norman doorways that could quite easily have inspired the doorways to and within the Mines of Moria. The doors shown here are original and feature fine Norman iron-work.

Unfortunately the church was not open so I was unable to go inside and share the treasures within.
