16.5.66 Statue and Pedestal
(formerly listed as
Statue and Pedestal in
Hurstbourne Park)

C18. Associated with Wyatt, who designed the mansion (now gone). The structure is a
cube, with arched openings in slightly projected facades, surmounted by a
semi-spherical dome. The walling and dome is heavily rusticated limestone (imitating
tufa) and the deep recesses are lined with squared knapped flint, all on a brick
foundation. The crowning feature is a male Roman 'emperor' figure, with a crouching
child. The whole stands on a square berm, with orientation to former avenues. The
sole surviving landscape feature of a once-notable landscaped park.
