Charles Palmer Statue, Jarrow


The statue was designed by Albert Arthur Toft and unveiled in 1903 by Lady Palmer. The statue pays tribute to Sir Charles Mark Palmer, the first Mayor of Jarrow, and founder of Palmer’s Shipyard, which at it's peak once employed over 10,000 workers. The statue originally stood in the Palmer Memorial Hospital, but was moved to Jarrow Riverside Park in 1982. It was moved again to its present position, to make way for the extension of the Tyne Tunnel. The statue is Grade II listed.
