Grade I listed, constructed 1817-9. The first monument dedicated to Nelson in England. Its correct name is the Norfolk Naval Pillar, but is generally known as the Britannia Monument as it's topped by Britannia, not Nelson. Not a lot of people knew that!

I visited this Monument Twice today, once at 07:15 and i read a notice saying that the tower was open every sunday from 10am till 4pm and for 3 you can go to the top ! so i came back at 10am :-) It was a very interesting bit of history and becouse of this and becouse i went to the top i have scored it a 10 out of 10. Here is a link to a 360 degree view from the top of the tower that i found on the internet ! http://www.eyerevolution.co.uk/virtual_tours/nelsons_monument/

TG41 INT005 Monument. Built in 1817 at a cost of 7000. Brittania on the top cost 892 alone. Grade I Listed. Also known as: Norfolk Pillar MONUMENT ROAD. Monument. 1817-19. By William Wilkins. The first monument in England to Admiral Lord Nelson (Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square was 1840-43 but the column in Dublin was of 1808). The monument consists of a fluted Greek Doric column on a square pedestal standing on a raised plinth. The pedestal has one recessed niche in each face and a frieze of laurel wreaths. In the cornice is a plaque to each face inscribed with the name of a naval engagement. An inscription records Wilkins as the architect and various other dignitaries: John Walker, master mason; Francis Braidwood, contractor; Archibald Swinton, foreman. The plinth is of stone and has several recesses and projections. The column is surmounted by a figure of Britannia in fibreglass standing on a disc supported by Caryatid figures. The figures were of Coade stone when built, replaced in concrete in 1896 and finally in fibreglass during the restoration of 1982-4.
