Statue of Thomas Attwood
The statue of this noted 19th century political reformer lies at the rear of the Town Hall, close to Chamberlain Square. Don't look up for a familiar plinth; instead, look down. His life-sized figure reclines on the steps leading into the square and often causes a double take from passing pedestrians who are unfamiliar with the area. He is reading some papers, and more are scattered around, leading to a soapbox from which he has presumably just stepped. Erected (if that's the word) in 1993, this is one of the city's wittier and more interesting sculptures.
