This is a pleasant monument at the corner of Thames St and at the base of the Castle walls, it can easily be missed - worth seeking out if heading across bridge to Eton.

This simple memorial to the Queens Grandfather is located under the walls of Windsor Castle and the bottom of Thames Street. One can pass it by unnoticed, but it is worthy of at least a couple of minutes contemplation. As said it is simple, unadorned,...More

By Lutyens, in the same simple, elegant style he used for the Cenotaph on the Mall in London, where the Armistice is remembered each year in November. This fountain, which needs some looking after, commemorates the war and the king at that time. We saw...More

London and the area have more monuments and statues than anywhere else that I've ever been. I found this one somewhat plain and uninteresting. It only took a few minutes to look at.

Just perfect unassuming piece of Lutyens neither grand nor portentous but a memorial to an old gentleman who had been a safe pair of hands.
