Collingwood Monument
Collingwood Monument
Erected in 1845 by Public Subscription to the memory of ADMIRAL LORD COLLINGWOOD, who in the "ROYAL SOVEREIGN" on the 21st October 1805, led the British Fleet into action at Trafalgar and sustained the Sea Fight for upwards of an hour before the other ships were within gun shot, which caused Nelson to exclaim "See how that noble fellow Collingwood takes his ship into action" He was born at Newcastle-upon-Tyne 1748 and died in the Service of his country, on board of the "VILLE-DE-PARIS" on 7th March 1810 and was buried in St. Paul's Cathedral. The four guns upon the monument belonged to his ship the "ROYAL SOVEREIGN".
