1862Joseph DurhamN/A Statue Grade II Unveiled 4 February 1911. Originally conceived by Prince Albert as the crowning feature of the Memorial to the Great Exhibition in South Kensington; it was substituted for a statue of the Prince himself after his death. Exhibited at the 1862 International Exhibition, the statue was afterwards installed in the nearby gardens of the Royal Horticultural Society. It was donated to Friary Park shortly before the park's opening by the businessman Sydney Simmons. The figure was re-dedicated as a memorial to Edward VII, who had recently died and who was sometimes called "the Peacemaker".[4]
