Pre-C18. An undatable jumble of forms in stone. The octagonal base with
4 seats is probably mediaeval (it is illustrated in a drawing of Wilton done
circa 1568), possibly also the square pillar above this. The upper parts
are probably C17 and include a heavily sculpted block, possibly a cross
or more probably a sundial on corner cannon balls with above, also on corner
cannon balls, a moulded base for the C17 godrooned vase which caps this
structure.
