The Green Gresford Wrexham_County Wales
Click for more information
There is an abundance of stone carvings on All Saints Church Gresford, from animals with weird heads to a variety of grotesques and demons. As is common to many of the East Wales "Stanley" churches there is a string course of animals on the external walls. There is also an interesting collection of head-stops consisting of not only the usual grotesque figures but also a cross section of medieval folk, from Kings and Queens to common drunkards. It all leads me to the conclusion that the late medieval stone masons and indeed Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry Tudor (who paid for the works), had a great sense of humour!
