St Bridget’s, West Kirby - Head-stops

Like many church windows those of St Bridget’s, West Kirby, have decorative hood moulds, or drip stones, projecting above the windows to protect them from rainwater running down the walls. They end in what are generally called label-stops which, when resembling human heads, are often called head-stops.
