Rather English - See the Britannia Monument, Great Yarmouth

A Grade I listed monument, standing 144 ft above Great Yarmouth, the Britannia Monument is East Anglia's own Nelson's Column, built between 1817 and 1819 to commemorate Horatio Nelson.
Also known as the Norfolk Naval Pillar, the monument was restured in 2004 - 2005 ahead of the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar, and is open for tours during the summer months. For more, see http://www.nelson-museum.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14&Itemid=14
