This statue of Queen Anne was overlooking the market square. Pretty impressive, lots of detail. Quite unique and impressive.

Went on a guided tour of Kingston and was asked who we thought was the gold statue. We thought it was Queen Victoria, only to be told that it was Queen Anne who had 17 children, but not one survived.

Statues as opposed to portraits of Queen Anne are rare indeed. Attached as it now is to a building erected in 1838-40 one might be forgiven for wondering whether it is a statue of Queen Victoria. However it is of Queen Anne and dates from 1706 so commissioned during her reign as part of a restoration of what was then Kingston’s Town Hall. A mason Francis Bird was paid £47 18 shillings and sixpence for his labours. It was installed in the replacement building which served as the Town Hall until the completion of the Guildhall in 1935. It was reguilded in spectacular fashion in 1995.

The gilded statue of Queen Anne cost £47.18.6d in about 1706. The current building was completed in 1840 and the statue was again sited on it.
