taken 18 years ago, near to Nether Wallop, Hampshire, England

Francis Douce's pyramidal mausoleum, Nether Wallop
Francis Douce's pyramidal mausoleum, Nether Wallop
This is the mausoleum of Francis Douce (1677-1760), a benefactor of the village. In his will he left a legacy to the village, provided that his pyramid and railings were maintained. The pyramid does still stand, to the west of the renovated St Andrew's church tower, but the railings have gone. His cousin built the pyramid at Farley Mount (SU4029 : The monument at Farley Mount) and another relative ("Mad" Jack Fuller) has a similar pyramidal mausoleum at Brightling (TQ6820 : Pyramid in Brightling Churchyard).
