More about Braunston

Yesterday I found a leaflet published by Rutland County Council. They have produced a set of Heritage Trail leaflets. According to their information on the goddess figure it is a Sheela-na-gig.

It was hidden for many years, set as a stone in the threshold of the church doorway. It was discovered during renovation and placed in its current position. No-one seems to know anything else about it. The church itself is 12th century.
