Monument to the Lloyd family, of Berth, Llanbedr. Erected in 1879 by Edward Owen Vaughan Lloyd (d.1911) to commemorate sucessive generations of his family (from the early C17 onwards); by Wilkins and Hill, builders of Bristol.


The monument is in the form of an Early English-style tower with crocketed finials and tall spire, and rises to a height of approximately 5m. Of buff sandstone construction on a limestone ashlar plinth, with pink/white figured marble and red and white sandstone dressings; red brick core. The plinth is stepped (3 steps) and is surmounted by the main tower, of square section with twice-chamfered plinth. On each face, above the plinth level, is a pointed-arched niche with an inscription tablet within; further inscriptions appear on the plinth base. The niches have counter-changed and roll-moulded red and white sandstone voussoirs carried on engaged marble columns with moulded bases and waterleaf capitals; moulded and returned labels with foliated stops. At each corner is a further shaft and capital, as before, with a central square pier linking these to the inner columns, thereby forming a triple cluster to each side. Above each niche, to the L and R, are inset marble spheres. Stiff-leafed frieze to the top, with surmounting crocketed and foliated gables, with further crocketed finials at the corners. The gables each have a blind quatrefoil oculus to the centre [the finials to each were found to be damaged/reduced at the time of inspection]. Octagonal spire with lucarnes, crocketed upper section and carved fictive tiles.

The main (W) face of the lower, tower section has a roundel within its niche containing a small commemorative limestone bust of John Lloyd of the Middle Temple, KC, d.1806.
