Monument

Grave marker for Robert Ernest Hunt in 2018.

We have used the grave register to work out that this base with displaced kerbs in the north section of the parish of St Andrew the Great is the grave marker of Robert Hunt. It is clearly visible from the path round the centre circle but will probably be covered by grass in time.
