Edward VII
Edward VII
The statue of King Edward VII in Whitworth Park was commissioned by James Graham. The sculpture was John Cassidy LinkExternal link It was placed immediately inside the main entrance to park opposite the entrance to St Mary's Hospital which the King had ceremonially opened in 1910. The entrance featured fine stonework and gates but these were removed following a redesign of the park in the 1950s so there are now railings in front of the statue. Over the years the sculpture also suffered the ravages of weather and some vandalism. It underwent conservation work in 2008. A photograph of how it used to look is included on an information board SJ8495 : Whitworth Park Information Board provided by the Friends of Whitworth Park LinkExternal link
