SJ 46 NW CHRISTLETON C.P. THE VILLAGE

3/36 Memorial shelter on the
Village Green

GV II

Memorial shelter : dated 1886 probably by John Douglas in memory of
Auguste Maria Fuller. Ashlar red sandstone base, open timber top with
pyramidal roof of wooden shingles, lead cap and iron finial.
Octagonal battered plinth with 2 openings carries bulbous turned oak
balusters carrying the roof. On inner side of lintel inscription
reads :

ERECTED BY LUCY ANN INCE TO THE DEAR MEMORY OF HER SISTER AUGUSTE
MARIA FULLER WHO DIED AT CHRISTLETON ON THE 4th OF JULY 1871. BLESSED
ARE THE PURE IN HEART FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD 1886.

Very similar to but simpler than an example in Eccleston village of
1874 by John Douglas.
