TQ 1769 SE KINGSTON-UPON-THAMES HIGH STREET (east side) 6/28 Coronation Stone


The stone on which the West Saxon Kings are traditionally said to have been crowned during the C10. The stone is not mentioned by Leland or Camden, but is tradition- ally said to have been preserved in the chapel of St Mary which fell down in 1730. It was then placed outside the Town Hall (on the site of the present Market House in the Market Place) and used as a mounting block until 1850 when it was moved to its present position. The stone is set on granite base upon which are inscribed in lead letters the names of the Kings traditionally crowned upon it. Surrounded by railings and balustrade, probably mid 19th century: seven stone piers with conical scalloped hoods and cubic capitals joined by cast iron railings in the form of intersecting round headed arches, with cubic capitals below, resting upon circles. These details match those of the adjacent Clattern Bridge. Victoria County History, Surrey, Volume III p.487.
