The Lansdowne Monument

The Lansdowne Monument is a 38 metre tall stone obelisk in the heart of Wiltshire. It was erected to commemorate the ancestor of Sir Charles Barry, Sir William Petty in 1845. You can literally see the monument from miles away from many places in Wiltshire.

Due to degradation, the monument is now surrounded by a fence and a net which the National Trust placed there to stop falling debris injuring the public. Never the less, it’s a really interesting monument and impressive to look at up close.
