St. John the Baptist is a simple rural parish church, without elaborate gargoyles or carvings. On the outside of the building there are small carved heads on the ends of the mouldings round the windows.
Many of these are very eroded.
Most are faces, some serene,
A few are images of unidentifiable beasts.
There is a band of carvings around the tower, barely visible from below.
The medieval masons obviously thought this was a chance to have some fun.
There can be little doubt of the comic intention here.
Sometimes the message even seems a touch subversive.
