Destroyed Monument


Lost statue. It was a bronze figure with outstretched arms 1.8m high, on a stone circular pedestal 2m high and was donated by members of the Burns Club. It was erected in Walker Park in 1901, repaired and re-sited in Heaton Park in 1975 and removed in 1984 after vandals broke the statue into several pieces. A replica has been re-erected in Walker Park August 2016.
