Why the unhappy face on town hall?

Why the unhappy face on town hall?

Sir, — I was standing outside the health food store in Henley when I looked up at the roof of the town hall and noticed an ornate face on both sides of the front wall.

It could be a gargoyle and the figure looks quite miserable.

Does anyone know what this is supposed to represent please?

I have checked about five of my local history books and they do not cover this topic at all.

Hidden Henley indeed but up above town this time. — Yours faithfully,
