Village Quirks – The face in the wall

Can anyone help? While on my walks around the village I have noticed an unusual brick in the Boughton Aluph Wall (one of the longest walls in Britain built by a father and son) in front of Middleton Cottages, which has been carved into a face. To find the ‘face in the wall’ start by facing the Iron Room and then walk towards St Christopher’s church. The face is a little way along. 
When was it built into the wall, by whom and what is its significance? I would love to know! Please send me any information you have for inclusion in a future Parish Magazine.
