Halswell Monuments

At St. Edward’s Church, Goathurst. 

The monuments erected to the Halswell / Kemeys-Tynte family include names of some of the greatest sculptors to have worked in Britain, John Michael Rysbrack (1694 –1770) and Joseph Nollekens RA (1737 –1823). The seventeenth century monument which includes sculptures of all the members of the family at that time is also a triumph to an anonymous master sculptor of the time.
