TQ2896 : Cockfosters: Trent Country Park

taken 10 years ago, near to Cockfosters, Enfield, Great Britain

Cockfosters: Trent Country Park
Cockfosters: Trent Country Park
This small obelisk, with a melon finial, is a monument to Henry, Duke of Kent, and stands at the western end of TQ2896 : Cockfosters: Trent Country Park. The inscription on the other side reads:

These Gardens
were begun
in the Year 1706
at Several times
Inlarg'd Alter'd and Adorn'd
to this Year 1740

However the obelisk was brought here from Wrest Park by the then owner of the estate, Sir Philip Sassoon, sometime in the early twentieth century, so the inscription does not refer to this location.
