At 175 feet, Wellington Monument is the tallest three-sided obelisk in the world. The foundation stone was laid in 1817 and it was finally finished in 1853 after more than three decades of building work.

It is no doubt and impressive landmark but the Wellington Monument is in need of substantial repair. Blackdown Hills AONB is doing what it can to support the National Trust in securing the future of this historic structure.
