It was designed by Robert Hooke and Sir Christopher Wren, and built out of Portland stone, comprising of a simple fluted Doric column topped by a flaming urn of copper gilded with 2 layers of gold leaf to symbolise the Great Fire. It is positioned at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Hill, close to the spot in Pudding Lane on which the Great Fire is believed to have started.
