Saint John the Baptist, Wantisden, Suffolk

Saint John the Baptist, Wantisden, Suffolk Outside it is a chamfered label with a row of sawtooth on the face and another on the chamfer. There are grotesque human head label stops and a similar head corbel interrupts the label at the apex. All three heads are worn, but all have large oval eyes, drilled for pupils and wide mouths. The E head has a mouth open at the ends and closed in the middle; the apex head appears to have a curly moustache and a cleft upper lip. The heads are flat at the top and do not fit well in their present locations; they may be reused corbels. http://www.crsbi.ac.uk/ed/sf/wanti/index.htm
