Full Description

Two carved stone heads are reported to be set into the walls of the back garden of no. 24 Fitzallan Street, Glossop. Both are c. 8ins high by 6ins wide and have lentoid eyes, moustaches and centrally parted hair. They are simple crude sculptures in the Celtic tradition with flat backs. There is a church nearby, but not one of great antiquity and almost certainly not the original source of the heads. (1)
