The Hartlepool Monkey
The Hartlepool Monkey
This monument on Hartlepool Headland commemorates the possibly apocryphal tale which is by turns a source of pride or embarrassment to Hartlepudlians. It concerns a monkey washed overboard from a ship in the time of the Napoleonic wars. As the monkey was unable to give a good account of itself in any intelligible manner, the worthy citizens of Hartlepool hanged him as a spy. LinkExternal link
