Weymouth's getting an early Easter present.

The repair works to the Grade 1 listed Kings Statue have been completed .

The scaffolding will start coming down very soon.

Sarah Cairns, Dorset Council’s Assistant Head of Assets and Infrastructure, said;

“Over 700 hours was spent restoring the structure to its former glory and it’s great to see the King’s Statue looking its best in time for the Summer season.”

Weymouth Town Clerk, Jane Biscombe said; “

Thank you to Dorset Council for the time spent in restoring the statue, which both residents and visitors will now get to enjoy. Weymouth beach and the Esplanade are rich in Georgian history, and the King’s statue reminds us all that Weymouth held the title of King George III’s seaside resort of choice for many years, and it remains as popular today as it was with royalty in Georgian times.”
