LOOK UP anywhere at Hedon’s St. Augustine’s Church and you can guarantee that your stare will be returned by non-human stone figures. Gargoyles, grotesques and stone faces cover the walls and architectural features of the church. There are dozens of them. They have been watching over our ancient town for hundreds of years.
We are always keen to hear about local history stories from the area and see your photographs. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
