I have only found one reference to this and here it is

Face in the wall

We have seen this many times in the past but heard it had been vandalised and possibly moved, as we have not been able to find it more recently. Apparently it was carved by workmen when building the wall and represents either a tyrannical Foreman, or an Inspector of Works, who made their lives a misery. It is mentioned in the book "Rivington, Lancashire" by M. D. Smith which can probably be found in Horwich Library.
