Jacob The Circle drayhorse sculpture on Queen Elizabeth Street.

The famous Courage Brewery drayhorses were stabled on this site from the early 19th century, delivering beer from the Horsleydown Lane Brewery to pubs across London.

In the 16th century the area became known as Horsleydown, derived from 'horse lie down', a description of working horses resting before crossing London Bridge.

Jacob was commissioned by Jacob's Island Company and Farlane Properties as the centrepiece of the circle, sculpted by Shirley Pace and unvelied in 1987.
