18/142 Urn approx. 15m south
- of tower
Urn. Circa 1826 to 1842 for Charles Kynaston Mainwaring. Sandstone.
Large urn with foliage decoration and 2 horned ram's heads to sides.
Ornamental carving to rim and plumed feather-like decoration to underside;
carved plinth. Stands on a mid-C20 tall red brick base (not of special
architectural interest). Charles Kynaston Mainwaring was a keen amateur
gardener and he travelled extensively on the continent. It is believed
that he was personally responsible for much of the design of the garden at
Oteley and for the features therein. His house, Oteley Park, built for
him in an Elizabethan style on the site of an earlier building between
1826 and 1830 and extended in 1842 was demolished c.1960. B.O.E. p. 226;
