Digby memorial, Sherborne Abbey - 2010

The magnificent Digby memorial to John Digby, 3rd Earl of Bristol (died 1698) and his two wives dominates the south transept of Sherborne Abbey, Dorset.

 

"He was naturally inclined to avoid the hurry of a public life, yet careful to keep up the port of his quality. He was willing to be at ease but scorned obscurity."

 

The sculpture in white and grey marble is signed by John Nost.
