Wren monument closes for restoration work in London





One of the City of London's most prominent landmarks has closed for a 4.5m pounds restoration programme.
The Monument's stonework will be cleaned and repaired and the famous golden orb re-gilded during the work.

There are also plans for live views from the top of the tower to be relayed to visitors on the ground unable to climb the 311 steps to the top.

Every year more than 10,000 people visit Sir Christopher Wren's monument to the Great Fire of 1666.

Andrew Patterson, Project Manager, said: "The work will involve redoing all of The Monument from the very top to the very bottom."
