English: A monument to Admiral Collingwood (1748-1810) was erected in Tynemouth, North East England, in 1845. Designed by John Dobson, the main feature is a 23 feet (7.0 m) tall statue, sculpted by John Graham Lough. It also features four cannon from HMS Royal Sovereign, his ship at the Battle of Trafalgar. The statue and cannons face directly south, looking across the mouth of the River Tyne, toward the beaches of South Shields.
