Bournemouth: threefold sculpture
Bournemouth: threefold sculpture
This sculpture, which was presented by the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth in 1998, has three things to commemorate:
Firstly, Lewis Tregonwell (facing us) who founded Bournemouth in 1811;
Secondly, C.C. Creeke, the borough’s first Town Surveyor and Inspector of Nuisances;
Thirdly, the three local holders of the Victoria Cross – their names are on the scroll being held by Tregonwell, namely Cpl. C.R. Noble; Sgt. F.C. Riggs; Lt. Col. D.A. Seagrim.

Mr Creeke is depicted sitting on a lavatory (see SZ0890 : Bournemouth: the man on the toilet), representing his role as Inspector of Nuisances.

Below Tregonwell is SZ0891 : Bournemouth: Town Hall.

The SZ0890 : Bournemouth: Pier Approach is beyond.
