  1. On reading the Durham volume of Pevsner”s Buildings of England the text states that it is a Doric column but on checking the glossary it points out that Tuscan is a type of Doric along with Greek and Roman so he classifies it as a “Tuscan Doric” column!


  2. The comment I wished to attach is this:- The picture of the Doric column – a Doric column is one of the five orders of architecture and is a FLUTED column with a plain abacus (the bit at the top). The column pictured is a TUSCAN column which is very similar to the Doric but SMOOTH.
