SK4292 ROTHERHAM CHAPEL WALK (south side, off), Masbrough 9/16 Walker Mausoleum and railed enclosure with obelisks and end piers (formerly 3.7.74 listed as Walker Mausoleum, under College Road) GV II Mausoleum. Probably early C19. For the Walker family. Ashlar sandstone, graduated slate roof. Small, square, single-storey building in much-altered enclosure retaining end piers to front and obelisks to front corners. Mausoleum: plinth, projecting quoins. Simple freestanding urns flank renewed 6-panel door in architrave with plain consoles to solid, shallow pediment. Moulded eaves cornice with antefixae and blocking course peaked over door and with Walker emblem carved in relief. Hipped roof with renewed ridge tiles. Window in architrave and with closed shutter to each other side; ashlar blocking course and antefixae to left return only. Interior: (not available for inspection) retains memorial tablets to the Walker family. Square piers flanking front door have moulded plinths, monolithic shafts and gable-shaped caps; plain iron railings link to corner obelisks set on pedestals which match piers. It is uncertain whether this is the 'Monument to our good father' put up in 1784 by the family of Samuel Walker (Guest p489). In style it appears to be later. J. Guest, Historic Notices of Rotherham, 1879.
