TQ 2980 SE CITY OF WESTMINSTER ST. JAMES'S SQUARE,
24.2.58 Statue of. William III
(in centre of square
Equestrian statue. 1807 by John Bacon junior but very likely to a design
of his father's dating back to 1794. Cast bronze on bow-ended high stone
pedestal set on plinth which may be earlier. The King is depicted as a
Roman general, but with late C.17 dressed hair,astride a spirited horse, the
design probably inspired by Rysbrack's equestrian statue of William in
Queen's Square, Bristol. The statue was provided for under the will of
Samuel Travers, d.1724.
