Traditionally this statue of the Duke has had a traffic cone on his head (courtesy of generations of students). The council spent thousands removing it every day but some years ago gave up and it is now ranked by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 most bizarre monuments on earth. The sculptured area inside the horse is the street layout around the statue.
