A Thaxted Gargoyle [Aug. 29th, 2019|08:17 pm]
Tony Grist
Simon Knott- the East Anglian churches man- reckons to visit 15 churches by bike on a good day; I've visited something like that many- by car- in three days- and I'm exhausted. I haven't sorted through my pictures yet, but here's one, chosen more or less at random. It shows one of the many gargoyles and other grotesques that adorn the exterior walls of St John's, Thaxted- one of the loveliest churches in England.

Ha! Until I reached the last line of your post, I thought Thaxted was the past tense of the verb "to thax," and I was wondering what it meant.

Looks like your Thaxted gargoyle might have been retrofitted...

Retrofitted? Yes, I think so too.
