9/5 Monument to Charles Brook


Monument. Circa 1872. To Charles Brook 1813-1872. Square stone base with
2 polygonal steps up to cylindrical pedestal of polished granite with inscription
and moulded capital and base. On top of pedestal is a stumpy quatrefoil pier
of white marble with stiff-leaf capital, the front shaft with a carved portrait
head in a mandorla-type arrangement. Above is a carved figure of an angel
kneeling on one knee with small children sheltering in its wings. Charles Brook
funded the rebuilding of the church opposite and probably funded the building
of the school.
