The Lansdowne Monument was erected in 1845 by the 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne to commemorate his ancestor Sir William Petty. Although restored in 1990, subsequent deterioration has required the erection of a protective enclosure around the base of the monument to protect the public from falling masonry (visible in this image).
Location: Cherhill Down, Wiltshire, England.
