Bourne Hall – Ewell East (25.2.2018)

I was told that the dog statue was made to remember a local hound that jumped into the lake to save the life of a drowning child sometime in the 19th century. The dog pulled the child to the bank, but the exertion led to the death of the dog. The rich owner had the ‘Dog Gate’ built to forever remember the bravery and selflessness of this family pet.
