ARCHIPEDIA - K is for.....

Decorated and ornate kneelers in Prinsengracht canal Amsterdam Holland

KNEELER - Stone or brick projection and end cap to a gable with copings. Often decorated. Its practical use is to provide a stop end for the copings to the gable. In England the kneeler often projects over the eaves line (as in the pic below) and is a common feature in northern areas. Also known as a skewputt in Scotland.
