Glanville monument - church of St Peter ad Vincula, Broad Hinton
Lt Colonel Francis Glanville the second son of Sir John Glanville, Speaker of the House of Commons in 1640, was killed fighting for the king at the siege of Bridgwater in 1645. His alabaster figure in armour stands in a niche, his right hand is holding a banner with his coat of arms. Above him hangs his own real armour, a helmet, gauntlets, and to the right, a replica of his sword (the original is in the Tower of London). The sides of the niche are decorated with small alabaster reliefs of victories, whilst below his feet is a rather grisly panel, normally hidden from view by a bench (I moved it temporarily to one side). It depicts the reclining figure of a half naked woman, whose facial features are contorted in an expression of agony. LinkExternal link
