SD 40 SE RAINFORD CHURCH ROAD

1/97 Two statues the
'Images' at
Nos 133 and 135

II

Statues. Probably C19 but may be earlier. Cast artificial stone or
terracotta. A pair of statues in Roman type costume, the one on the
left (No. 133) perhaps Perseus with the head of Medusa or perhaps
Minerva who had Medusa's head on her shield as here; the one on the
right (No. 135) apparently Mars. Both stand on square plinths which are
on brick bases. Both have an iron ring in the small of the back. They
are in line, at the same level and 6 metres apart and are apparently in situ.
The brick base visible at No. 133 undisturbed. May have been connected
with Image House previously on the site.
