TP8981 - Lord Aylesbury Column

Lots of very ancient oak trees in Savernake - Big Belly Oak is supposed to be over 1,000 years of age. The column is not visible until quite close and seems a little incongrous in the middle of the forest, but it's another interesting reason to visit Savernake.

Pleasant walk from A346 to NW, although you can drive to the monument. The plaque uses the spelling Ailesbury.

The 90 foot high commemorative column stands on a small hill on the south eastern edge of Savernake Forest to the south east of Marlborough. It was reached by tracks through the very pleasant woodland. There are some impressive trees in the forest and I was accompanied by birdsong throughout. The monument stands on the high point of a tree lined avenue leading to Tottenham House. It is a Grade II listed structure dating from the 18th century. Botley Down can be seen in the distance beyond the house. The column commemorates the recovery of King George III from illness and the conferring of an earldom to Thomas Bruce. It was originally sited in Hammersmith but was moved to its present site to enhance the view from Tottenham House. The ancient woodland of Savernake Forest is a SSSI.
