Artist's Description

Reginald First Lord Cobham (1295-1361), St Peter and St Paul, Lingfield, Surrey, UK.

5 frame HDR shot with a Canon EOS1000D and processed in PS8.

In Caen stone with a Reigate stone effigy.

Any resemblance to the Black Prince effigy at Canterbury Cathedral is not purely down to the era. Reginald was a statesman and military mastermind serving with the Black Prince at Crecy and Poitiers, and was Admiral of The Fleet at the victorious Battles of Sluys and Winchelsea.

He wears on the left leg a garter symbol of being one of the first recipients of the Order Of The Garter and very high chivalrous honour most of which founder members were veterans of Crecy.

For such a man he succumbed to the Black Death in 1361.

Behind is the tomb of his grandson also Reginald and wife Mary.
