Obelisks
Chilstone have supplied many
pieces over the years for the
magnificent gardens at Hole
Park, Rolvenden, Kent. We
were delighted to supply this
personalised version
of our Bowood obelisk, erected
in the parkland to commemorate
100 years of one family’s four
generations there.
The obelisk stands in full view from
the front of the house and is an
important focal point in the park,
standing near a “keyhole” planted
in the millennium year.
Further details of Hole Park can be
