- east of tower
Urn. Circa 1826 to 1842 for Charles Kynaston Mainwaring. Sandstone.
Large urn with foliage decoration and 2 horned ram's heads to sides.
Ornamental carving to rimand plumed feather-like decoration to underside;
carved plinth. Probably original square base with chamfered projection
to sides. Charles Kynaston Mainwaring was a keen amateur gardener and
he travelled extensively on the continent. It is believed that he was
personally responsible for much of the design of the garden at Oteley and
for the features therein. His house, Oteley Park, built for him in an
Elizabethan style on the site of an earlier building between 1826 and
1840 and extended in 1842 was demolished c. 1960. B.O.E. p. 226;
