S wall of chancel
CS1: An old corbel; a grinning mask; a human lion?
CS2: Possibly a ram’s head; if so, perhaps representing a leader of the flock, that is, an apostle, teacher or priest.
Corbels CS3 to CS8 are restorations.
CS9: May be original.
CD10 and CS11: Modern; the latter looks like a copy of an original figurative scene, but the stone has split. Compare NN9.
CS12: Probably medieval; a man’s face looking disconcerted, one hand to his chin. From the W, an animal’s tail curls up onto the face and the expression is one-sided. Compare NS11.
