History

History:The statue/seat has been installed just yards from where Keats started writing his celebrated work, The Eve of St Agnes. It was unveiled in August 2017 by Chichester-based actress Dame Patricia Routledge. The statue is situated in view of East Street towards Chichester Cathedral and other Chichester landmarks mentioned in The Eve of St Agnes. Behind the statue is the building where Keats started the poem. From the original conception, the project took approximately three years at a cost of £30,000 to £35,000, originally raised in donations, and then £20,000 released in section 106 agreement money through the district council, with the city council making up the deficit.
