Duke of York Column

This column, which stands above the steps leading to St James's Park, is 124 feet high, and was erected in 1833 as a memorial to Frederick, Duke of York, the second son of George III. Although an able and devoted Army administrator, as Commander-in-Chief he was less successful in the field: according to popular song he 'led his ten thousand men up a hill and then he led them down again'!
