Queen Victoria at St.Nicholas Square, Newcastle.

One of the the things I miss about England is the architecture, the monuments, the history. This statue was one of my favourites in Newcastle (near the Vampire Rabbit at the Cathedral Buildings). Here is a link to a fabulous photo, but what most of the links don't tell you is that the monument sits atop a Plague pit in "which over three
