The Obelisk at Kirkley Hall

  • Description

    "Rev Newton Ogle (1726-1804), Dean of Winchester Cathedral, erected this Obelisk in 1788 on "a grassy knoll" to commemorate the centenary of the landing in this country of William of Orange and his wife Mary, and the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688-9. The Ogles were the landed family who occupied Kirkley Hall nearby." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2010.
