The Prince Imperial monument has been restored to its former glory after Council contractors mistakenly hacked down the surrounding hedge two and a half years ago.

Erected by public subscription in 1881, the monument is situated on the Common alongside Prince Imperial Road and is maintained by the Keepers.

Contractors were mistakenly sent to tidy it up in October 2014 (in readiness for the centenary of WW1) and were a bit over zealous in their efforts.

Jonathan and Peter cleared up the cuttings that had been dumped in the bushes and have since managed to coax the hedge back to life.
