Elba Monument

II

Monument erected in 1814 by James Bateman of Tolson Hall. Roughly squared and coursed limestone on 2-stage plinth with ashlar dressings. A plaque (now missing) apparently stated: "In honour of William Pitt the Pilot that weathered the storm" Elba. James Bateman of Tolson Hall intended to inscribe these words on this monument, when he built it in 1814. But owing to Napoleon's escape from Elba the inscription was not engraved. A century later this tablet was placed here in 1914 by Charles Cropper of Ellergreen. The monument stands on a mound known as monument hill North West of Kendal and has landscape value.
