The lions are 2013 copies of the originals by sculptor John Cheere which had originally been sited at Stowe House. They were later installed in Stanley Park after the house was sold in 1922. In 2013 the original lions were returned on loan to Stowe House after thefts from Stanley Park and the copies installed in Stanley Park in the same positions.
