The lychgate outside St. James church

Avebury,Wiltshire,England view map

On the midpoint of the crossbeam between the eaves of the roof,can be seen a carving of a scallop shell.I am assured that this is to show pilgrims on the pilgrimage trail to Campostela,in Spain,that they have come to a church on this route.see http://www.csesto.com/shadows/shadows2.html
