Migrants Statue, Humber Quay
Migrants Statue, Humber Quay
More than 2 million people passed through Hull and other Humber ports to America between 1836 and 1914. Neil Hadlock’s sculpture depicts a family from Northern Europe having left ship before continuing to Paragon Station where they will travel on by train to Liverpool then journeying by ship to America.

The statue is located on the reclaimed land at “The Bullnose” where ships waited for high tide before entering Humbert Dock. It was donated to Kingston Upon Hull in 2001 by the Sea Trek Foundation of America as they retraced their descendants’ journeys in tall ships from Northern Europe.
