Monument. Circa 1872. To Charles Brook 1813-1872. Square stone base with
2 polygonal steps up to cylindrical pedestal of polished granite with inscription
and moulded capital and base. On top of pedestal is a stumpy quatrefoil pier
of white marble with stiff-leaf capital, the front shaft with a carved portrait

kneeling on one knee with small children sheltering in its wings. Charles Brook
funded the rebuilding of the church opposite and probably funded the building
