Our Projects - Hardy's Monument

28 Work to restore the Hardy Monument on Black Down, Portesham in Dorset, has been completed by the National Trust. The 72 foot high monument to the Admiral who was Flag-Captain of HMS Victory at Trafalgar, was in a poor state of repair and becoming unsafe with falling masonry as a result of exposure to weather. £150,000 was spent to repair the damage and allow people to climb the 84 steps once more to the top for views across the down.
