Elaborate military monument dating from 1841 to Colonel Gorrequer, ADC (aide-de-camp) to the Governor of St Helena during Napoleon's banishment. There is evidence of erosion at foundation level and architectural elements are threatened by ivy growth. A comprehensive condition survey was produced in 2013, funded by Historic England. Works are being prioritised accordingly.
