The seated bronze figure, made by Horace Montford in 1897,
is on a polished granite plinth raised on two steps. The base
of the statue shows Darwin's dates and is signed with the name
of the sculptor, and its founders, Broad and Son. Charles Darwin
was born in Shrewsbury in 1809. From September 1818 until 1825
he attended Shrewsbury School as a boarder. At that time Shrewsbury
School occupied the buildings in the background, now a library.
