Collingwood Monument


The Collingwood Monument was built in 1845 in honour of Admiral Lord Collingwood, who led the British Fleet to victory at the Battle of Trafalgar after the death of Nelson, saving Britain from likely invasion during the Napoleonic Wars. The statue was sculpted by John Graham Lough, standing on a pedestal designed by John Dobson. The prominent position of the monument means the statue can be seen from the sea and the River Tyne, and marks Collingwood's family connection with North Shields. The 4 cannon on the steps of the monument came from his flagship, the Royal Sovereign.
