A maniacal character

This crazy, bulging-eyed but strangely friendly character with luxuriant foliate eyebrows, can be found on the west side of the north porch.  He probably dates from the thirteenth-century as the north chapel dates from that period.

Also at Ashton Keynes

  • In the churchyard is the first of four crosses to be found in the village.
