The Grade II listed Aldershot observatory dates from around 1906 and is a circular red brick building with a domed roof, standing on Queens Avenue. The observatory was given as a gift to the British Army by aviation pioneer Patrick Young Alexander and has gone through various stages of use and disuse over time and was opened to the public in 2000. The 30 foot high 26 feet long ‘Wellington Statue’ was designed and built by Matthew cotes Wayatt from recycled bronze from cannons captured at the Battle of Waterloo. Now residing on Round Hill behind the Royal Garrison Church the statue was originally erected at Hyde Park Corner in London having been handed over to Lieutenant General Anderson, the commander of the Aldershot garrison in 1885 by the Prince of Wales. Aldershot offers extensive amenities: supermarkets, restaurants, Bingo, high street shopping, and the new Westgate Leisure Park, a great destination for dining, shopping and cinema.

Sir John Betjeman “A Subaltern’s Love Song” “Miss J. Hunter Dunn, Miss J. Hunter Dunn, Furnish’d and burnish’d by Aldershot sun, What strenuous singles we played after tea, We in the tournament – you against me! Love-thirty, love-forty, oh! weakness of joy, The speed of a swallow, the grace of a boy, With carefullest carelessness, how gaily you won, I am weak from your loveliness, Joan Hunter Dunn.”
