Knill's Monument
Knill's Monument
Also known as Knill's Steeple. A granite monument to John Knill, built in 1782, though the modest man himself died in 1811 and was buried in Holborn. Every 5th year on St James's Day (25th July), a fiddler playing the Furry Dance leads two elderly widows and ten young girls in a dance around the monument. The ceremony is due next on the 200th anniversary in 2011.
