Base of the Walhampton Monument, east of Lymington
Base of the Walhampton Monument, east of Lymington
The Burrard Neale Monument or Walhampton Monument comprises a massive stone stepped plinth, surmounted by 75 foot high tapered obelisk. Each of the four faces of the base has a large iron plaque giving a fairly lengthy account of Sir Harry Burrard Neale's life in wildly varying type sizes. It was erected in 1840, to the memory of Sir Harry Burrard Neale BT. G.C.B., G.C.M.G., M.P. for Lymington in 1832. Many have seen the top of this obelisk sticking out of the trees on the east side of the Lymington river, the base is found near a right-angle in Monument Lane. In this picture you can see the results of copper leaching out of the bronze armorial above the iron plaque on eastern face.
