Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 3. Exterior Decoration: d. Miscellaneous: Block carved with human head" at East Garston.

In gable below sundial. An approximately square block carved with a face with wide brow and pointed chin. The eyes are oval with brows and a pair of wrinkles above, the nose triangular with two nostrils, the mouth like a letter-box. Around the face are worn curls of hair. Carving is technically crude - the face plane has been cut back to allow the features to be carved in relief.
