Hi Guys, the quest for Nelson statues goes on! Recently visited Berkshire College of Agriculture, originally Hall Place, the seat of Sir George Clayton East.send gifts online sahulatbazar.com/send-gift-to-pakistan/ Being bit of a Nelson fan he commissioned a statue of Lord Nelson (in the 1830s) and had a brick pyramid built beside it. All that remains of Nelson's statue is the base with part of his feet. Most of the pyramid remains. I've searched high and low for an original sketch or print of this statue at Hall Place but to no avail. There must be one as anyone in those days going to the expense of erecting such a monument would have made a record of it. Help!

Although I live in the US right now,
I will be visiting Berkshire College of Agriculture next month.......

I'm a senior professor and I've got to deliver two lectures there. Because the lectures are 4 days apart, I will have 3 days to spare.....

Also, I've got a couple of highly-placed friend in Maidenhead, Berkshire. I'll try my best to investigate and locate the sketch or print and let you know the results.

I'm also a US citizen but study in Berkshire College of Agriculture. We're eagerly waiting for your lectures. And if you may, I can accompany you to Maidenhead, Berkshire and serve you as you guide as I know that area quite well.
