Take a look at this inspiring collection of images recording the development of the Lost Trawlerman Memorial in Hull by Nigel Walker.

In 2003 Saint Andrews Dock Heritage Park Action Group launched a public appeal to raise money for a memorial to over 6000 fishermen who gave their lives in the fishing industry sailing from Hull. In 2015 Peter Naylor won a public vote on submitted designs. This design in weathered steel now stands on St Andrews Quay, on a temporary site. Once work is completed on flood defences in the area a memorial garden will be completed and the sculpture will be moved there as a centrepiece. 

Nigel Walker worked with STAND and Peter Naylor to record the making of the memorial - from early design work in the studio, to the cutting of the steel, erection on site and the dedication of the monument by the Archbishop of York in 2017. Nigel continues to visit and photograph the sculpture and will eventually finalise this documentary when the memorial garden is completed sometime in 2020. Fundraising for the garden continues. 

Location: The Carriage House, open daily from 10am - 5pm

This exhibition is included with the normal admission charges.
