1/30 Holgate Monument
G.V. I

Monument 1785, by James Wyatt. Coade stone. Monument in the form
of a triangular pedestal with concave sides supported on 3
tortoises and crowned by an urn. 2 circular steps rise to a
double plinth and gadrooned base upon which stand 3 tortoises.
From these creatures rises a fluted concave base from which the
pedestal ascends. On one concave face of the pedestal is a panel
inscribed. 'Erected by the first Baron Yarborough. To the memory
of George Holgate of Melton, a tenant and friend who as a mark of
gratitude and regard bequeathed to him a small estateat Cadney
and who deserves to be remembered in the class of farmers as a
most excellent character, entirely free from affectation of
anything above that respectable station in life to which he was
so great a credit.' On the other 2 sides are panels depicting a
mourning figure and a seated Anona holding wheat ears. Above is
an entablature and blocking course rising to an urn with
gadrooned base, bent fluted upper part and flaring rim bearing
branches and foliage in bas relief.
