Site: South Bank Lion & Jubilee walkway (2 memorials)

SE1, Westminster Bridge

We first noticed this lion way back in the 70s. Out for a walk along the river-front we noticed big cat footprints stencilled on the ground. These led us to the apparent culprit, high on his plinth. It was never proven but student involvement was suspected.

The walkway plaque is the one you can see on this giant plinth, to the lion's right.
