One of the PAD posters posed for that carving, can you guess who ?

Was it Gar Goyl?


Comment by Derek Platt on 11th February 2017 at 02:13
Alan, you can't be thinking of Mick can you


Comment by Ellen on 11th February 2017 at 03:49
How strangely appropriate it is that this creature is covered in moss!...Great capture!


Comment by Rachel on 11th February 2017 at 07:30
There are so many grumpy old men out there so it's anyone's guess !

Garry ?


Comment by Veronica B on 11th February 2017 at 09:19
I believe Grotesques with their closed mouths are more artistic ornamentation. Gargoyles on the other hand with their open mouths were devised as water spouts - the fiercer the better to ward off evil spirits in medieval times.

Nice photo. As to the face, I could model for this when I view the content of some of the modern Wigan photos


Comment by Anne on 11th February 2017 at 10:15
I could also model for this when I am avoiding clipboarders and chuggers. Nice clear piccy.


Comment by Veronica B on 11th February 2017 at 12:26
The 'nowty' face doesn't appear to have an effect on warding the pigeons off! Forgot to say what a good picture it is!

He looks like a Wigan Athletic Fan at full time.


Comment by Garry on 11th February 2017 at 18:11
Now hang on a minute, I'm not grumpy far from it, I'm a very nice man of good character. You've made me a little sad....double sherry for me tonight in front of me roaring coal fire.

Garry;-I like this comment of yours, it speaks well of you.


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 11th February 2017 at 21:07
Don't sup it all Gazza, I'll be round in a bit. I'm just soaking me feet and clipping me toenails. I've got a bit of Brie and half a packet of Ritz crackers left over from Christmas, shall I bring them with me ?

Cheers Ellen x
Only need my dog for company, Ozy.


Comment by Lynne on 12th February 2017 at 12:31
Looks a lot like Trump to me!
