This is a gargoyle on the church of St Nicolas in Newbury, West Berkshire. The original founder of the church is said to be Ernulf, the lord of forty-eight manors under the gift of William the Conqueror, towards the end of the 11th century. The only trace of this first church is some of the north porch foundations discovered outside the present building. The church was entirely rebuilt, probably between the years 1509 and 1533. St Nicolas is chiefly notable for the consistency of this early 16th-century, late Perpendicular Gothic architecture. It is of unusually large size for a parish church.
Have a question about Scrum or agile practice in general? I hang out in the Scrum Forum. Post a query there and I'll help if I can:
For the low-down on many topical issues, you can see Agile Tom, the Scrum Shack's resident cat.
I'm Chief Scientist at proAgile Ltd. You could pretty much say that software engineering methodologies are my bag.
I specialize in agile transformations at enterprise scale, and tweet and blog quite actively about this. I'm also the curator at agilepatterns.org.
Hobbywise, I'm into Extreme Ironing. I've ironed underneath the ice-sheet of a frozen lake, and I've also gifted the world with the "fusion" sport of bog snorkelling + extreme ironing.
I do quite a bit of scuba diving in lakes and rivers, mainly in pursuit of antique bottles.
Cave diving is another interest, and I have traversed White Lady sump in the Dan-yr-Ogof system while training under the redoubtable Martyn Farr.
Of course, I have plumbed even murkier depths on public sector IT projects. This latter experience once lead to an outburst of Vogon Poetry; you can commiserate by reading it here.
