Twerton, Bath, North-East Somerset

These large-fanged creatures are in the porch of St Michael and All Angels, Twerton. 
The two creatures bite down with wrinkled noses on the columns

A drawing that shows the arch and its diamonds and inscription: "This is none other but the house of god and this is the gate of heaven"

There's a photo of the real thing on the Proud of Twerton website. The presumably Victorian inscription (the door was moved in the 19th century) is from Genesis 28:17.
