Stoodley Pike Monument
A monument on Stoodley Pike was built by public subscription in 1814 to commemorate the peace after Napoleon's defeat but coincidentally it collapsed after a lightning strike on 8th February 1854, the day the Russian Ambassador was withdrawn from London at the start of the Crimean War. To mark the end of the Crimean War in 1856, a new 110 foot monument designed by local architect James Green was erected in its place, this time with a lightning conductor attached.
