The Monument (note the definite article), designed by Sir Christopher Wren and Dr Robert Hooke, commemorates the Great Fire of 1666 which destroyed most of the medieval City of London. The fire began in Pudding Lane, less than a stone's throw away. The column is 202 feet high and there are 311 leg-busting steps to the top; great views, though!
