Kingston-upon-Thames

Was walking through Kingston-upon-Thames last week and finally got chance to snap a couple of pictures of the ‘Out Of Order’ public art piece by David Mach that has been around almost as long as I’ve been alive!

Kingston-upon-Thames is also very well known for The Coronation Stone:

The Coronation Stone

The Coronation Stone is an ancient stone block, located next to the Guildhall in Kingston upon Thames, England

Early sources claim that at least seven of the old Saxon kings of England were crowned at Kingston as they stood or sat on the stone.

The names of the seven kings are now inscribed around the Stone’s plinth. These were:

  • Edward the Elder
  • Athelstan
  • Edmund I of England
  • Edred of England
  • Edwy of England
  • Edward the Martyr
  • Ethelred the Unready
