The bronze statue of John Bright on a tapering square stone pedestal with cornice and moulded base, on stylobate is sited in Broadfield Park and is positioned so that it looks out towards Rochdale. Designed by Hamor Thorneycroft, it is Grade II listed LinkExternal link

Rochdale Town Council proposed a statue be erected in the month following Bright's death in March 1889. The statue was unveiled by John Morley in 1891 and remained in the Town Hall Square until 1933 when alterations to the road layout resulted in it being moved to Broadfield Park.

It is inscribed on all four sides:
SD8913 : John Bright statue inscription (1).
