Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009



Type Statue

     A crudely carved figure on a corbel over the door of what was previously an inn, depicting the naked Bacchus sitting on a beer barrel, swigging from a bottle. On the underside of the corbel there is a carving of a cherub.
     The statue is probably of the same date as the inn itself which Pevsner says is eighteenth-century.(1)
