A Petersfield Landmark -
The statue was commissioned by Sir William Jollife, MP, in 1750 and moved in 1812. I think Sir William just really admired the dude. I had the pleasure of meeting a drunk bloke in the adjacent pub who claimed to have gotten sloshed and ridden on the back of the statue several times. I can't remember his name but I hope it wasn't JD.
St Peter's Church, in the background, dates to the 12th century in the Norman style.

This is a beautiful lake with a nice walkway surrounding it. Worth a sunny afternoon's time, for sure. In October the fun fair, or Taro fair - is going on.
