The Grey monument by the Market.
Grainger erected the Grey Monument, 135 ft high on a tall pedestal. The column (Roman Doric order) of the Grey Monument was designed by Benjamin Green in 1838 and the inscription extols the virtues of Earl Grey
"THE SERVICES RENDERED TO HIS COUNTRY BY, CHARLES EARL GREY K.G., WHO, DURING AN ACTIVE POLITICAL CAREER OF NEARLY HALF A CENTURY, WAS THE CONSTANT ADVOCATE OF PEACE, AND THE FEARLESS AND CONSISTENT CHAMPION OF, CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY., HE FIRST DIRECTED HIS EFFORTS TO THE AMENDMENT, OF THE REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE IN 1792, AND WAS THE MINISTER, BY WHOSE ADVICE, AND UNDER WHOSE GUIDANCE, THE GREAT MEASURE OF PARLIAMENTARY REFORM, WAS AFTER AN ARDUOUS AND PROTRACTED STRUGGLE, SAFELY AND TRIUMPHANTLY ACHIEVED, IN THE YEAR 1832."
The Grey Monument at the top of Grey Street with the portico columns of the Theatre Royal on the right.
The Theatre Royal has giant Corinthian portico, and is the work of Benjamin Green's design of 1837
The Theatre Royal, Grey Street, has been fully restored including the magnificent safety curtain! I remember many years ago going to see performances by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
