Talbot hound - suggest you read the text while the photos download

carved Talbot hound, The Lodge to Chewton HouseA lorry had a disagreement with this gate pier. You can see that the new stonework is already beginning to blend in with the old. Carved for the 12th Earl Waldegrave. This is The Lodge to Chewton House, Somerset.
