The Monument is intrinsic to the history of the area, built in
1859 to commemorate Francis Egerton, the 1st Earl of Ellesmere, in
another time the monument was a popular local attraction, but has
simply become forgotten mainly because it is in an obscured and
inaccessable position. With the RHA intending to bring local school
children onto the garden site for educational purposes what better
occasion might there be to kindle an interest in local history than
having an impressive 132 foot high monument of Worsley's
irreplaceable architectural heritage within the grounds.
Much of the equipment that might be required to re-locate the monument is likely currently on-site at the RHA Garden development, there will probably never be a more cost-effective time if this impressive follly is to be saved from being lost forever.
