Middle column, from the top: Queen Elizabeth II Diamond; Queen Elizabeth II Golden; William Wallace; Queen Elizabeth II Silver;
At the right: Simon de Montfort;

and on a lower step, but not visible in our photo: Charles I;

and on the next landing down:
an empty space left by a plaque that has been removed (interesting but we have no information); and Mandela.
