Evan Pierce Memorial Garden, Denbigh
Dr Evan Pierce (1808-1895) was born in a small village just outside Denbigh and attended Denbigh Grammar School. He trained as a doctor at Edinburgh University and qualified in 1832. On his return to Denbigh that year he was faced with a cholera epidemic that had claimed 300 lives in one month. He joined other local doctors in caring for the sick and after hard work the epidemic was finally brought under control. In 1872 a number of his admirers undertook to commemorate his services to the community and this statue (Sicilian marble) was erected on a column of limestone, quarried from Denbigh. The garden and the statue have recently had a facelift. LinkExternal link
