The statue was created in 1970 by Doug Forsey, apparently to fill an empty space where a door had been blocked up. She was made from chicken wire and cement.
Jane Seymour was born in around 1509. She was a lady-in-waiting to Henry VIII's first two wives, Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn. In 1534 she attracted the king's attention. They married a few days after Anne Boleyn's execution in 1536. However Jane died at Hampton Court on 24th October 1537, 12 days after giving birth to the future Edward VI. Jane had no connection to Nether Stowey.
