Fishermens' Memorial at junction
Memorial statue. 1906. By Albert Leake. Life size Portland
stone figure of a fisherman in a defiant attitude, on a square
pink granite pedestal with plinth, cornice and inscription.
Stepped stone base. The memorial was erected by public
subscription in memory of 3 trawlermen killed in 1904 when the
Russian Baltic Fleet fired on a group of Hull fishing vessels.
This is known as the Dogger Bank Incident and ironically led
to an improvement in Anglo-Russian relations.
