Notes:

The treatment of the eaves illustrates a very characteristic, though by no means invariable Norman feature, namely, the corbel table, a series of prjecting stones at intervals, carrying a continuous course of long flat stones, forming a fine cornice and giving the eaves greater projection (38. 43, 45). The corbels are generally carved into grotesques and the under side of the flat course is sometimes shaped into a series of semicircular arches. The corbel table is common in freestone districts, but was usually omitted elesewhere. (p. 42)

The photographer is given in the acknowledgements as the late Mr. B. C. Clayton, and thus died before 1936, more than 70 years ago, so this image is out of copyright.
