Monument to John Lonsdale Bishop Lichfield 1788-1867

Francis Chantry's "Sleeping Children"

A remarkable sculpture considered, rightly, to be one of Chantry's finest.

Chantry is said to have viewed the monument to Penelope Boothby by Thomas Banks in St Oswald's, Ashbourne, which is similar in subject and quality.

Somewhat reminiscent of Edward Onslow-Ford's "Snowdrift".
