Anti-Slavery Arch: Stroud

On the corner of the Paganhill Estate in Stroud, Gloucestershire stands an Arch, the only memorial of its type left in Britain, to the Abolition of Slavery in the British Colonies. It was built in 1834 as the grand entrance to a Georgian mansion, Farmhill Park, by its new owner Henry Wyatt. The house, carriage drive and gates are gone, leaving the classical arch with its diminutive lodge house.
