E of Church of All Saints
Monument. Late C16. Painted limestone. Large panelled chest tomb has 2
full-length effigies, the male raised up behind the female, and has a flat stone
canopy carried on Corinthian columns and a deep frieze carved with fruit and
swags. The soffit of the canopy is coffered and above it is strapwork cresting
with a central cartouche of arms. A further armorial cartouche is fixed to the
front of the canopy. The reredos has 2 arched recesses containing inscriptions
commemorating Sir Anthony Pollard (died 1577) and Phillippa his wife. In front
of the chest are 2 weathered effigies of children. The monument was removed to
Baldon House grounds when the medieval Church of All Saints was demolished and
was restored to Nuneham Park in the early C20. The monument is built into a C20
(Nuneham Park is included in the HBWC County Register of Gardens at Grade I;
