Wilberforce Monument, Hull
Monument to the memory of William Wilberforce, which was moved to its current location outside Hull College in 1935 from close to St John's Church on Monument Bridge (now the site of Ferens Art Gallery).

William Wilberforce (1759-1833) was a member of parliament for Hull and became leader of the Committee for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. He campaigned for this cause for some twenty years until The Slave Trade Act finally received the royal assent and became law on 25 March 1807. Wilberforce's birthplace at No.25 High Street is now a museum. LinkExternal link
