4/2 The Staunton Memorial

Memorial pavilion. 1828. Once called Shell House, and later the Chichester
Cross; hexagonal Gothick structure, in imitation of the medieval Cross in the
centre of Chichester. It is open on 3 sides, with a wider central arch, the
whole structure being built in a depression, giving it a grotto-like character.
There are stepped buttresses at each corner, which support the 4-centred splayed
arches, with cement pinnacles having a leaf pattern surface, stone weatherings
and plinth and stone weathering to the parapet. The walls are of flint,
irregular for the main walls, knapped and coursed for the arrises, with panel
work of very small round flints, forming a blind arcade (of tiny pointed arches)
under the parapet, dark panels to the front of the buttresses (smaller above
larger), pale panels at the sides of the openings, with dark knapped and squared
flints forming flush ogee arches above the openings. Above the central (wider)
opening there is a stone panel on brackets, with a carved heraldic device in low
relief. Within some of the brick backing wall is exposed, but sufficient remains
of the patterned rendering to indicate the former appearance, which was arcaded.
One arch contains one and another 2 inscribed wall monuments. Wrought-iron
rails now protect the interior.
