The Picton Monument
The Picton Monument
The original monument, erected in 1828, stood at the west end of the town and was erected in memory of Sir Thomas Picton, who died in the Battle of Waterloo. Unfortunately, this monument fell into a dilapidated state within a few years and the monument was dismantled in 1846.

The foundation stone of the current monument standing at the top of Monument Hill was laid in 1847. In 1988, the whole monument was rebuilt stone-by-stone on new stronger foundations.
