Listing Text

SX 8679
6/38 The Obelisk

Obelisk. Late C18/early C19. Granite obelisk raised on a tall rectangular base and
moulded plinth. A later marble plaque fixed to the obelisk refers to the provision
of drinking water in 1879.
It has been suggested that the obelisk, of Haytor granite, was erected to mark the
erection of London Bridge, built of the same stone.
