Northop Parish Church is situated in the village of Northop Flintshire in North East Wales. St Eurgain and St Peter's church is a member of the "Stanley" group of churches, that is, it received the patronage of Margaret Beaufort (wife of Lord Stanley) mother of Henry V11 and benefactor to several North East Wales churches. The stone carvings are not as evident as on other Stanley churches but the typical small animal carvings can be seen as hood stops .....two stops to each face of the tower. Gargoyles are to be seen on the seventh string course, and the walls are topped with battlements and eight crocketed pinnacles. At the ground floor level is a square-framed Tudor doorway with heraldic emblems in the spandrels, and a four-centred archway. Two of the corbels within St Peter's have been claimed as 14th Century: on the north side the most westerly corbel is of a man's head and the fourth from the west end appears to be an eagle or mythological beast with a man's face.
