This towering monument, standing at over 40 metres in height, is a memorial to one of England's leading military figures of the 19th century. Following the Duke of Wellington's death in 1852, the column was commissioned in 1861 and designed by the Lawson brothers of Edinburgh.
The statue points in the direction of the Duke's most notorious military victory, Waterloo. Listed around the base of the monument are the name of other notable battles where Wellington was victorious, primarily in Spain and France.
