Monument Yard
The Monument public realm enhancement project was completed in February 2007 to enhance the setting of the Monument, the tallest isolated stone column in the world commemorating the Great Fire of London. The project involved the creation of a new public space, a seating area and new sculptural pavilion, as well as use of high quality materials. Restoration of Monument, itself, was completed in February 2009 and has experienced an increase in visitor numbers of 35%.
