Sleaford, Handley Monument
Henry Handley (1797-1846) was born in Sleaford and as in later life occupied Culverthorpe Hall.
He sat as MP (for a Wiltshire constituency) for nine years and was an entrepreneur with particular interest in steam power and agricultural improvements.
After his death a public subscription raised £942 towards this fine monument completed in 1852 on Southgate.
The architect was William Boyle of Birmingham.
