Andy Capp statue
Standing on Croft Street on Hartlepool Headland. The statue, by Shropshire artist Jane Robbins, captures the working class cartoon hero in a typically relaxed pose, but minus his trademark cigarette. The 5 feet high, bronze statue was unveiled on 28 June 2007. The 20,000 statue was funded by the North Hartlepool Partnership with the help of a 2,000 donation from the Daily Mirror, the news paper in which Andy first appeared in 1957 LinkExternal link
Reg Smythe, the creator of Andy Capp, was born and died in Hartlepool and based the characters on his own parents LinkExternal link
