Romsey Abbey - North Side

 

 

 

The Romsey Sheela Na Gig

 

 

 

 

The crozier bearing sheela-na-gig abbess occupies a modest spot just above several centuries of door and window history on the abbey's north transept wall.

 

 

 

This rare "birthing corbel" is near the Sheela-Na-Gig.  It is probably a 1800s copy of a similar medieval representation. 

 

 

 

On the other side of the transept, a Saxon Rood (cross) just outside the prioress' door, which originally would have been a corner of the cloister.
