Gladstone turns his back on Ladbrokes
This statue of William Ewart Gladstone originally stood on the Boulevard, where it was unveiled in November 1899 by the Earl of Aberdeen. In 1955 it was re-sited outside the old Technical College. He was moved yet again, in 1983, to the spot he occupies to this day, on the junction of Northgate and Blakeymoor, his back to Ladbrokes and on his own road island ringed by double-yellow lines.

Why is there a statue of Gladstone in Blackburn? The short answer is, I don't know? The long answer can possibly be found at LinkExternal link
