Statue: 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers

Erection date: 21/12/1888

Site: Duke of Wellington statue - SW1 (5 memorials)

W1, Hyde Park Corner

The large terrace area around the statue is worth commenting on. It's clearly original and has somehow survived. There are 4 concentric bands, some plain mosaic, some patterned mosaic with a fancy Greek key design, some in a bold design from stone of two colours. The Victorians would do this sort of thing without thinking about it; we've lost the art.
