Methley Church, detail of stone grotesque
Undated. View of a grotesque carved on one of the corbels (stone brackets) that support the roof timbers of the chancel of Methley Church, Church of St. Oswald. As a boy, the Castleford born sculptor, Henry Moore, would visit a favourite aunt who lived in Methley. He made drawings of the strange little stone faces and also of the alabaster tombs in the Waterton Chapel. He stated in later life that the sculptures he encountered in Methley Church had an influence on his own approach to and passion for sculpture.
