photoblog image Wisbech 5/7

Wisbech 5/7

The Clarkson Memorial in Wisbech commemorates Thomas Clarkson (1760 – 1846), a central figure in the campaign against the slave trade in the British empire, and a former native of Wisbech. It is a Grade II listed building.  The memorial consists of his statue mounted on a platform. Above this, rises a canopy, in the form of a spire. The whole structure is 68 feet (20.6 m) high.

I have never seen a canopy like this over a statue, Brian.
Very impressive! I like this in B&W, it suits it very well I think.
