The Gargoyles of Leicestershire

Author Bob Trubshaw is on a mission to document all the gargoyles in Leicestershire, England. He has formed Project Gargoyle which deploys a team of amateur gargoyle hunters and photographers in the first initiative of its type in England.

Leicestershire was a hotbed of gargoyle carving in the 13th and 14th centuries due largely to its access to limestone, which is strong and easy to carve. [photo]
