Cromwell online exhibition

A sequence of statues of Kings and Queens was agreed, without Cromwell, and they decorate the outside of the building, overlooking New Palace Yard. They are arranged from left to right, and top to bottom, chronologically. There is no gap between Charles I and Charles II. Parliament denied Cromwell's existence - at least as an architectural ornament.
