4/108 Statue about 5m south of the Manor
Statue on column. Late C19. Bronze statue on granite column with moulded base and
cap. Statue probably German, of a gooseherd holding a goose under each arm. The
Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was both squire and parson at Lew Trenchard
from 1881 to his death. He rebuilt Lew House, now the Manor Hotel, incorporating
fittings collected both locally and in Europe. His own description of the house
refers to this statue "... the herbaceous borders full of flowers, a granite
fountain, always playing, with the figure of an Alastian gooseherd, imagine it on a
sunlit evening". Included for group value with Manor Hotel.
