Listing Text

TQ 67 41 BRENCHLEY HIGH STREET, BRENCHLEY
(south side)
15/115 Hooker memorial immediately
west of the north transept
of the Church of All Saints
GV II


Memorial in the form of a cruciform chest. Probably 1860s. Portland stone-
Early English style. A large, coped, cruciform chest with a foliated cross
carved in relief on the top and an oversailing lid with an order of stiff-leaf
foliage carved below it. The sides of the chest are decorated with blind
trefoil-headed arcading on shafts with stiff-leaf capitals. Inscriptions, the
earliest dated 1830, commemorate members of the Hooker family.

A rather unusual and ambitious Gothic Revival design in an outstanding
churchyard.
