Monument or seat. Early C19. Limestone. Circular slightly
weathered top on ten moulded ogee arches, approximately 1.5 metres
diameter. The purpose of this is unknown, but it was possibly a
seat and erected for Richard Colt Hoare, the work done by John
Carter; ogee arches very similar to these were added to the Gothic
Cottage (q.v.), for a seat by John Carter in 1806.
