    A very nice photograph Mark despite your subject being rather ugly! I think you’ve done a very good job capturing this gargoyle’s good side. 😀

        A gargoyle would normally be a decorative feature carved into the structure of the building – traditionally at the end of drain channels – whereas a misericord was a sort of shallow wooden plinth or shelf that the monks/clerics could rest on briefly during long services.

        Well he was definitely stone, not wood, and he was decorating a pillar… I guess he is a gargoyle then.
