Village Pant, Chathill

"A great great aunt of the present Gilly Baker -Cresswell was driving a pony and trap up to the level crossing when a steam train, which should have slowed down because of the dip in the railway line at Chathill, frightened the horse and she was thrown from the trap and escaped serious injury. Being of a religious disposition she put this down to the good Lord and built the Pant for people to use and as a memorial of the incident. The inscription on the Pant says:

A thank offering
Nov 30 1887
Given by L. Baker-Cresswell
The Lord Shall Preserve
Thy coming out and thy coming in

The significance of the Pant is that it came at the end of reliance on horse transport." (Ellingham Neighbourhood Plan.)
