For our introduction to local corbels and a summary of corbel satyresses click here

 

 

Our first category on this page is male figures.  The male equivalent of the satyress is the satyr - typified by horns, large ears, cloven hooves, and grimaces or grins.  Much of this can be spotted in our first two images.  The third is pretty much the opposite - seated with hands on his knees.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our next four images represent a set of corbels.  These originally formed part of the inner courtyard of the Fleur de Lys Inn  (in the High Street demolished 1958).  They now support a jutting window in Whitehorse Lane.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The final four are a mixed bag - a smiling face, a curly pattern with interspersed plant leave, a 'red Indian' head with feathers, and a disgruntled man in a hood and loose robes.
