  • A horse-drawn statue commemorating the first Duke of Wellington (Arthur Wellsley) who defeated Napoleon's army at the Battle of Waterloo on the southeastern edge of Hyde Park. It is said that it was built on the Wellington arch before, but it is heavy and it is said that it replaced the angel image now. There is a hero statue everywhere in London.

  • The Wellington Monument is a statue of Achilles erected as a memorial to Arthur Wellesley, the first duke of Wellington, and his victories in the Peninsular War and the latter stages of the Napoleonic Wars. It is sited at the south-western end of Park Lane in London, and was inaugurated on 18 June 1822. Its total height, including the sculpture, base and the mound on which it stands, is 36 ft. The monument's colossal 18 feet (5.5 m) high statue of Achilles is by the sculptor Richard Westmacott, produced from melted-down captured enemy cannon. he monument was funded by donations from British women totalling £10,000.
  • Met my contingent here early for the People's Vote march on 23 March 2019. Best guess currently is that there were 1.2 million people there.
