Mausoleum of George Dodd, Norwood Road,West Norwood Memorial Park SE27 - Lambeth

Mausoleum, circa 1865, by Thomas Allom. Built of white marble in a northern Italian Gothic style, with a rectangular plan of three bays defined by pinnacle buttresses. The mausoleum was noted as being in a poor state of repair when listed in 1981 and has continued to deteriorate. The monument is now overgrown with vegetation. The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Local Authority a grant under the Parks for People programme which includes funds towards restoring priority monuments. Discussions are now underway regarding the necessary repair works.
