  • Description: This statue of Viscount Falkland by John Bell was exhibited in Westminster Hall in 1847 and at the Great Exhibition in 1851. It was commissioned by the Fine Arts Commission in 1845. In 1855 the sword fell from the statue, probably due to a fault in the fixing, and broke in half. In 1908 a suffragette chained herself to the statue causing the spur to break off - this was not reattached and is now assumed lost.
