6/140 Circular monument in the churchyard
about 8 metres north of tower of
Church of St Peter
Monument or seat. Early C19. Limestone. Circular slightly
weathered top on ten moulded ogee arches, approximately 1.5 metres
diameter. The purpose of this is unknown, but it was possibly a
seat and erected for Richard Colt Hoare, the work done by John
Carter; ogee arches very similar to these were added to the Gothic
Cottage (q.v.), for a seat by John Carter in 1806.
