Nelson's Column, London

Jake M.
Nelson's Column was built to commemorate the dead British naval hero, Horatio Nelson, who was killed in the Battle of Trafalgar which the square it is hosted in is named after.The column was proposed immediately after Nelson's death and the Committee of the Patriotic Fund raised £1,330 from public subscriptions. Thanks to interest this had swollen to £5,545 in 1838 when another appeal was run. The column stands at 46.5m tall, with a 5.5m tall statue of Nelson on top, making a total height of 52m. #Horatio_Nelson #London #Nelsons_Column #Trafalgar_Square
