BACHELOR'S ACRE
Jubilee Obelisk

II

Portland stone obelisk on corniced plinth. The inscriptions have been renewed. Erected 19 May 1810.

One plaque reads as follows: "Grand National Jubilee celebrated 25 October 1809. The Bachelors of Windsor hereby gratefully record the condescension of HM Queen Charlotte and her August Family in honouring them with their presence in this Acre to witness the roasting of an ox, the gift of R O Fenwick Esq of the Royal Horse Guards Blue, of which as also Plum Puddings provided by the Bachelors, they graciously partook amidst the acclamation of the joyful populace to whom this old English Fare was distributed".

The other plaque records the Jubilee event "... the Obelisk to commemorate the Happy Event of HM King George III entering the 50th year of his reign, was erected by the Bachelors of Windsor as a tribute of their gratitude for the particular esteem he has on all occasions manifested for their native town".
