 Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square was built between 1840 and 1843 to commemorate Admiral Nelson's victory and death at the Battle of Trafalgar. It is 151 feet tall, with an 18 foot statue of Nelson on top, facing south towards where HMS Victory is docked in Portsmouth. The column was designed by William Railton, and the statue was sculpted by E.H. Baily.
