Portland stone, female term, English School. A terminal figure with female head crowned with laurel wreath, the tapering pillar richly moulded with acanthus. In a pair with NT 516629.

The pair derived from early 18th-century termini at Chiswick House, London, although these appear to be later, possibly even 20th century.
