An extraordinary reminder of bygone times, the King Charles I equestrian statue was hidden underground for 40 years due to fears of a royalist insurrection by a paranoid government. Remarkably, after being hidden under the orders of Charles I himself, the statue survived and was placed on the middle of a traffic island in Westminster in 1676, where it has remained ever since. Many are unaware of the history behind the statue when they walk past it every day.
