Statue of Queen Anne south east of Holmhurst St Mary's School, The Ridge, Baldslow - Hastings

Statue, 1711-12 in grounds of former convent (now sold separately). Longstanding lack of regular maintenance meant it was deteriorating rapidly through rainwater from overhanging trees and saline rain from the sea. It has also been recently subject to heritage crime. It has now been made secure. An application for residential development which would secure the repair of the statue and improve its setting has now been granted by the Local Planning Authority. The developer has committed to carrying out repairs through a S106 Agreement.
