Long Description:
It is unusual to find such a chimera situated in such good condition and to be relatively low to the ground. It is a pig or warthog and the moss on its back has given it an authentic warty appearance. Guttering runs beside it and the church entrance is under the arched doorway. The chimera is quite prominent and visible as you walk up the main pathway. Topiary, yew bushes line the pathway and the churchyard is kept in pristine condition.
Water spout is used: no

Condition: Lightly Weathered
