William III has been watching over Petersfield Square for over 200 years. A popular landmark of the town.
From Monday 10th July scaffolding will be erected and the statue will be removed for repair.
He will be returning towards the end of September to sit back on his saddle to watch over the Square once more.
Cllr Russell Oppenheimer Executive member for Countryside and Regulatory Services at Hampshire County Council talks about the scheduled ancient monument that they are paying to repair over the summer.
