16/29 Carved bear
south-east of
Church of St Andrew

G.V. II*

Upright carved bear, one of a group of 4. Medieval. Red sandstone; about
4 feet high. Probably in its original position at one corner of the medieval
churchyard and thought to represent the third part of a 4-part story: the bear
makes a vigorous attempt to dislodge the animal clinging to its back, by
reaching over his shoulder with his right paw.
