John Buckett's poetic gravestone, Old St Peter's Churchyard
John Buckett was Bailiff and Election Manager for Stockbridge, a rotten borough which returned two MPs for just 500 people. His notoriety reached as far as parliament when the borough was disfranchised. The lengthy poem on his gravestone contains various references to his job as Landlord of the Kings Head Inn. The shadow on the gravestone is from one of the slender lime trees planted along the main path in the churchyard.
