Story

Aethelstan the Glorious, the fist King of All England was the first King to ever wear a crown and his image is the first painted image of a known King but he is little remembered today. Buried in Malmesbury close to Malmesbury Abbey we wish to erect a statue in his honour in nearby Birdcage Walk. The statue will be the start of our plan to raise Aethelstan's profile and bring him back into the pubic domain.

Aethelstan is not well known yet he finished what his grandfather, Alfred the Great, started. He finally expelled the Danes from the country, united the Kingdom under one crown, improved law & began to standardise coinage and trading throughout his kingdom. Charismatic, pious, highly educated and yet a 'thunderbolt' of a warrior, even his name brought fear to the battlefield.
