5/42 The Leicester Monument
Column. Monument to Coke of Norfolk, the agricultural improver. Erected by
public subscription 1845-8 to the design of W J Donthron. Single fluted
Corinthian column mounted on a massive stone plinth with bas-relief panels by
John Henning Junior on three faces, the fourth containing a dedicatory inscription
and Donthorn's signature. On the four corners of the base are symbols of Coke's
agricultural methods - a Devon ox, a Southdown sheep, a plough and a seed drill.
Massive capital with mangle wurzel and turnip leaves replacing acanthus. Lantern
pierced on four sides and crowned with a wheatsheaf.
The stone for the monument was donated by Lord Hastings of Melton Constable Hall
from his quarries at Seaton Delaval.
See R O'Donnell 'W J Donthorn" in Architectural History XXI 1978.
