Listing Text

NEWTON-ON-THE-MOOR NEWTON HALL
NU 10 SE
6/190 Pair of stone
lions south-
west of Hall

GV II

Stone lions, of uncertain date; moved to present position late C19. In
upright sitting position, c.1.2 metres high. Possibly of oriental origin.
Included for group value.

Historical note: A marble tablet to Samuel Edward Widdrington d.1856 in
Shilbottle Church bears an inscription stating "this stone formed part of
the Court of Lions in the Moorish palace of the Alhambra, (Granada, Spain)
whence it was brought in 1829". This suggests a provenance for the stone
lions.
