Hardy Monument

The Hardy Monument is a stone column on Black Down near the village of Portesham, in Dorset. It was erected in 1844 to commemorate the life of Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy, captain of HMS Victory in the Battle of Trafalgar.

The monument has been owned by the National Trust since 1938. More information can be found on their website: LinkExternal link

Note that the author Thomas Hardy, born in Dorchester in 1840, is a different person to Sir Thomas Hardy commemorated by this monument.
