Image of the feature "Miscellaneous: Carved head in E chancel wall" at Broomfield.
by Richard Slaughter.
A composite human head of light grey stone is set in the exterior of the chancel E wall, apparently as building material since it is laid slightly off the vertical and is in no way emphasized. It has a broad forehead with indications of rows of wavy hair. It narrows to what must be called a muzzle with a triangular open mouth. The eyes are drilled and there is no nose.
