Dear Jane,


I was wondering whether you could find something out for me. My son has some homework to do and he needs to know if the Cottingham church has any gargoyles or grotesques.


Please could you email me back if you know.

Hello Derek,


I’m not aware of any gargoyles or grotesques. I have some comprehensive notes on the Church and there are none mentioned, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any! Might be worth having a walk around the outside to see if there are any in the walls/gutters.


However, two of the stone pillars in the interior of the church have figures around the top of them, and there is believed to be a ‘green man’ carving at the Church – see the churches page for more information.


Hope this helps.
