865 MARKET PLACE

Built against Churchyard wall. Dated 1760. An inscription explains that it
was erected by John Bastard in memory of the fire of 1731. It consists of a
pedimented canopy supported on Roman Doric columns, and is an example of the
Bastards' later and more severely classical style. The entablature has triglyphs
and other classical detail. Portland stone. In 1897 a fountain was substituted
for the pump.
