1/67 Pair of finial obelisks, about 27
metres West of Chapel Cleeve Hotel
Pair of obelisk finials acting as garden ornaments. Perhaps C16, reset early C19. Doulting stone, about 2 metres high.
Slightly tapering, square in section with concave sides and acanthus leaf decoration on ridges, gabled plinths and
moulded cornice with poppyhead tops. It is possible that these finials came from Farifield House (qv) Stogursey Parish
since finials were taken off the house in the late C18 apart from smaller ones on the porch which bear some
similarities to these at Chapel Cleeve Hotel; and the architect of the early C19 enlargement of the house, Richard
Carver, also did minor alterations at Fairfield in 1815.
