St Edward's, Church Hill, Eggbuckland, Plymouth 16 August 2016
A winged lion gargoyle on the 1906 extension. Presumably leading waste water from inside the building, the pipe is plumbed in to the down-pipe. In Christian symbology, a winged lion is the symbol of St Mark.

St Edward's was built in about 1430, on a religious site dating back to Saxon times. There was further renovation in 1775 which is recorded at the time as having "been hated" by the locals. Extensions on the church are dated 1910 and 1906.
