Greenwich, January 2018

Nelson and George II

Green Ted place

This rather informal statue of Nelson is in the courtyard of the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich. A worn George 2 is nearby in the grounds of Greenwich U. Two entries from Peter Matthews' invaluable London's Statues and Monuments,

East of the Naval College, in Park Row, is the Trafalgar Tavern, once frequented by the likes of Gladstone and Dickens. Outside is the modern bronze statue of Lord Nelson (1758-1805), a rather jauntier depiction than the one in Leicester Square. It is the work of local sculptor, Lesley Povey, and was unveiled in 2009.
In the centre of the old Royal Naval College is a marble statue of George II (1683-1760) by John Michael Rysbrack … the king is depicted in Roman dress, standing in front of a broken column and holding an orb and sceptre. London's Statues and Monuments, Peter Matthews
