The Duke of Argyle's column Wentworth Castle
The Duke of Argyle's column Wentworth Castle
The column was built in 1743 to commemorate John, Duke of Argyll, father in law to William Wentworth and an important agent for the Act of Union with Scotland and surprisingly, in getting King George I to take the British throne. The column is modelled on one in Rome at Santa Maria Maggiore and instead of an angel has a statue of Fame on the top.
