The Bronze Anchor Memorial

The bronze anchor memorial commemorates the relationship of the city and the ships which bore the City’s name.

It is a tribute to all those who served in the ships and a memorial to those who gave their lives for their country.*

  1. I can imagine the terrible loss of local lads killed at the Battle of the Somme in World War One. And I hope that the memorial gave some comfort to the local parents and widows. The anchor figure is not a design I have ever seen before.

    This is a very appropriate statue, Cherry. What a wonderful design.

  3. What a wonderful and fitting memorial.

  4. I don’t remember this memorial in the cathedral.
    Was it installed fairly recently?

  5. Andrew says:

    That is a very fine sculpture. I have never been to Sheffield but I will probably go. There are so many places that are perhaps not obvious places to visit but still have much to offer.

  6. The Yum List says:

    Bronze is such a beautiful material to work with.

  7. lisl says:

    That is very striking. Is it quite large, Cherie?
