"Situated on the left side of the south facing early 12th century doorway, this Saxon stone engraving of an eagle's head may once have been part of a Roman building (a Roman Villa once stood half a mile north of the church). The builders of the Norman porch (demolished in 1864) may have placed it in its present position."
