A Classic Church

The architecture of Corinth Reformed Church, Hickory, North Carolina is reminiscent of a fine European cathedral. The exterior of the building is of gray Georgia granite with Indiana limestone trim. The spire is of extruded and structural aluminum rising 164 ft. 6 in. from the terrace floor at the entrance. The belfry below the spire is built up of carved and molded limestone tracery, giving a lacy and ethereal feeling to the church tower. The main entrance is of limestone having carvings similar to those found on French Gothic churches.

Durdle Door

Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset. Eroded by time and nature, Durdle Door is one of Dorset’s most photographed and iconic landmarks. The name Durdle is derived from an old English word ‘thirl’, which means to pierce, bore or drill.
