A Saint

We passed through the village of Weston on our walk along the Cotswold Way. Weston is now a suburb of Bath but was originally a village. We passed up a narrow road at the side of the church and passed a house with this little figure on the side of it.

Curiosity made me try and find out a little about it. I believe from what I have read on the Internet that it is supposed to be St Alphege who is considered to be Weston's own Saint. He is reputed to be born in Weston and is often depicted in shepherd's clothing. I am a little at a loss to work out what he is holding.

  1. There is something very moving about him. He looks s if he just stepped out of a nativity scene.
