Nelson's Column

Nelson's Column stands in Trafalgar Square in central London. It commemorates Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The monument was designed by William Railton in 1839 and was completed in 1843. The column is made from granite, with a sandstone statue of Nelson. The four bronze lions on the base were not added until 1867.

When the Column was refurbished in 2006 it was surveyed and found to be 4.4 m shorter than previously thought. Nelson's Column is 51.6 m tall from the bottom of the pedestal to the top of Nelson's hat.

The model has 575 bricks and the base measures 210mm square. The model features a full size minifigure to represent Admiral Nelson and trophy figures are used in the pedestal bronze panels. The four lions are made from a variety of small Lego pieces and are set at 45 degrees on the corners of the base.
