Croft Details

When University College was constructed a large number of quirky carvings were included scattered about the exterior - many are of animals or weird creatures but there are also some showing portraits of the workers themselves. Here you can see some of the little pieces found under the eaves Of Croft House which I showed you yesterday. It's great fun wandering around the building looking for more of them.

Great fanciful carvings, and even the symbol of the Masons included. They must have played a role at this university.

Nice find. On my occasional visits to T.O. I have noticed some strange carvings and statues on the buildings. I`ll post some some soon on by blog.
