Seven Dials original pillar

Building  From 1820 

Categories: History

The original column, erected 1693-4, was removed in 1773 and acquired by the architect James Paine who kept the pieces at his home in Addlestone.   In 1820 Weybridge wanted to erect a memorial to the Duchess of York who had died there.  The column was purchased by public subscription and re-erected on the Green in Weybridge.  And since then Weybridge have refused to give us our pillar back!  So in 1989 the Seven Dials Trust went ahead and erected a new one. The Seven Dials Trust gives more information.
