Sculptured Heads - Bradford

No 30 Chapel Street is an old warehouse in the heart of Bradford’s Little Germany quarter.
It has four windows, in each of which can be found a sculptured keystone head.
Their significance is a mystery; they might represent the different countries the warehouse merchant was trading with, or perhaps the continents. Whatever their reasoning, they are boldly carved and very well preserved, enticing an explanation of some kind.
