Description
English: Gargoyle on Bamburgh Castle This gargoyle can be found on Bamburgh Castle near the entrance to get inside this fantastic building.

WHAT IS A GARGOYLE

Gargoyles were created with a two-fold practical purpose. One, to ward off evil and second, to eject excess water from the exterior of buildings. A gargoyle, although sometimes mistaken for a grotesque, is a spout or eavestrough carved in the form of a human or animal figure projecting from a roof gutter to catch rainwater and throw it clear of a building.
