THE STATUE OF WILLIAM 111 A symbol of Petersfield
Although it has been said that many monarchs have passed through Petersfield it was William the third that proved the most popular to Sir William Jolliffe who left £500 for the erection of a statue in 1749. The statue was first placed in New Place, now known as St Peters Road and was opposite the Jolliffes residence. In 1815 the statue was moved to its present place in the Market Square , which for many years served as a Cattle Market for the district.
Today the town is very bustling in normal times and is proving extremely popular with outsiders wanted to buy in the town. With the opening of the Hindhead tunnel with a clear run one can travel from the outshirts of London within an hour or so. The train takes about an hour to Waterloo.
