  • Comment

English Heritage is to start unbolting the 42,000m of scaffolding around the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens next week (11 May). It will take four months to uncover the statue of Prince Albert, which has been covered for eight years. The £11.2 million restoration will be officially unveiled in October.
