The Battle of Britain Monument, Victoria Embankment

The site for the monument, suggested by English Heritage is a 25 metre long granite structur, built as part of the Victoria Embankment in the late 1860s. Standing between the RAF Memorial and Westminster Bridge, it lies at the end of the long triangular wedge of steps that divides the pavements of the Embankment riverside walk and the bridge approach road.
