Ruckland, St Olave, South Door
Interior of south door. A new south door was commissioned in memory of a regular member of the congregation, retired architect John Sketchley.
 
He was born in Loughborough in April 1915.  A career in architecture led to his becoming Chief Architect in Nottingham City Engineers’ Dept.  In 1964 he moved to become City Architect in Gloucester where he worked for the next ten years.   During that time he designed Sir Thomas Rich’s Grammar School building in Elmbridge.
 
The inscription around the head of the door reads:
 
IN MEMORY OF JOHN R SKETCHLEY FRIBA OF BURWELL MANOR 1915 1995

Pevsner simply describes this door at the south entrance as 'traceried'. It is clearly in Perpendicular style.

Does it date from the fifteenth century or from Hakewill's restoration of 1873? Its condition suggests the latter.
