Duke of Yorks Column
The Duke of York’s Column or the York Column is a prominent London landmark situated at the top of Waterloo Steps, which lead from the Mall through Carlton House Terrace into Waterloo Place. The Duke of York Column was designed by Benjamin Wyatt, one of the foremost architects of his day, and erected in 1834. It stands 124 feet high, with a small viewing platform just below the statue. Funds for the statue were raised by stopping one day's pay from every soldier in the late Duke's army.
