King Billy Statue ....

Seen in Hulls Market Place,

Equestrian gilt statue in Market Place erected in 1734, by the Flemish sculptor Peter Scheemakers. The lamp is one of four added in the late 19th century. The statue is larger than life-size and shows the king in Roman dress, on a rectangular ashlar pedestal with cornice and iron guard rail. The inscription reads: "This statue was erected in the year 1734 to the memory of king William the third our great deliverer".
