Country churches contain mysteries. St Mary's at Enville has number of these strange Saxon carvings, and it places them prominently up on its walls.
But - are they Saxon? Tradition says so, but historians err toward Norman.
What does it represent? Tradition says it is a former priest, but ... really?
And is that a beard under its chin?
What's great is that the church doesn't care. Church wardens in these situations know they are just the custodians of the village's history, not the interpreters.
