Carving of elephant with Castle howdah, circa 1859, by John Watson, a local stonemason. Red sandstone, high standing, the elephant and its base carved from a single piece of stone and the three-tier castle from a second piece. The elephant stands on a large flat base and has a saddle with straps and tassels which forms the base for the castle. The castle has a gatehouse, surmounted by a turret with crenellations and arrow slots, which leads to a keep with matching corner turrets. The castle walls are marked with courses and there are arches over the windows, which contain glass.
