Richard Baxter

The inscription reads,

BETWEEN THE YEARS 1641 AND 1660
THIS TOWN
WAS THE SCENE OF THE LABOURS OF
RICHARD BAXTER
RENOWNED EQUALLY FOR
HIS CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP
AND HIS PASTORAL FIDELITY

IN A STORMY AND DIVIDED AGE
HE ADVOCATED UNITY AND COMPREHENSION
POINTING THE WAY TO
THE EVERLASTING REST

CHURCHMEN AND NONCONFORMISTS
UNITED TO RAISE THIS MEMORIAL
A.D. 1875
