View of a strange little gargoyle sculpted in stone on the brackets that support the roof timbers of the Chancel of Methley Church, Church of St. Oswald. The Church dates from Saxon times but the Chancel was built in the twentieth century. This gargoyle has cross eyes, two horns and wings. The Castleford born sculptor Henry Moore visited Methley Church in his youth and he enjoyed making sketches of the gargoyles, even mischieviously comparing them to to Castleford residents of the time. These sculptures and those of the alabaster tombs in Waterton Chapel are known to have influenced Henry Moore in his future career as a sculptor.
