    I drove past this at first without seeing it, but then got a good view of it from much further away. It appears to be quite tall, but I understand that you cannot visit it close up. It is quite impres...  more »

    What do you say about a column. Erected to honour the Marquess of Anglesey, it is tall, proud, and can be seen for miles around.  more »

  • From a distance the column is highly visible, so from a curiosity aspect it is worth a look. My excuse was to avoid going into the Shopping Mall by the railway station. The Marquis was 2nd in Command at the Battle of Waterloo. A good pub quiz question, and one of which I was ignorant. At some time in the past, for a small charge it was possible to ascend the columns' internal staircase. I would image it would have given an excellent view across the surrounding countryside. Now the base and the little cottage are overgrown & boarded-up, which negates the need to there. Which is a shame.
  • Disappointing as access to the statue has been closed to public. Area is overgrown. This place has been neglected.
  • Beautiful Scenery and tranquillity
  • A really impressive column, unfortunately currently closed until further notice for safety reasons. Hopefully will reopen at some point, it would be a terrible shame for it to be closed forever.
  • Beautiful view from the top
