Fishermen's Memorial, Fleetwood Esplanade
Fishermen's Memorial, Fleetwood Esplanade
This memorial, facing the sea from the Esplanade, is made from parts of a trawler and contains a list of boats and souls lost at sea. It was created in 1987 and revamped in 2004.

A metal plaque (SD3348 : Past this Place) carries the inscription:
"Past this place, the fishermen of Fleetwood have sailed for generations while their families have watched from the shore. Their courage and comradeship under hardship is a living legend. This memorial depicting equipment from a trawler, was placed here in recognition of the great contribution which the men and women of the fishing community have made to the life of Fleetwood"

Another plaque (SD3348 : The Real Price of Fish is the Lives of Men) proclaims that:
“THE REAL PRICE OF FISH IS THE LIVES OF MEN”
And lists the names of fishing boats that have been lost at sea. See LinkExternal link for the full list.
