Orange Way after Wiltshire (655)
The information given here in the "small print" is "This ride originally formed part of King William III's carriage drive from Whitehall to Kensington Palace. Its construction was supervised by the surveyor of Their Majesties' Roads, Captain Michael Studholme and it was the first lamp-lit road in the kingdom. Designated as a public bridleway in the 1730's, Rotten Row is one of the most famous urban riding grounds in the world.".
The inscription is the same on both sides of the monument and it was erected in 1990.
