Countess Pillar

A66, Penrith

A monument erected in 1656 by Lady Anne Clifford of nearby Brougham Castle, to commemorate her final parting here from her Countess Pillarmother.

On the low stone beside it, money was given to the poor on each anniversary of her parting. Nearby is the Dolestone, where alms were distributed annually by Lady Anne. Countess Pillar is in the care of English Heritage.
