William Shakespeare and Prince Hal.
The Gower memorial - This is situated in Bancroft gardens and features William Shakespeare seated at the acme overlooking figures of his literary characters featured in some of his plays.
Prince Hal, Lady Mc Beth, Hamlet and Falstaff and represent Philosophy, Tragedy, History and Comedy.
The memorial was presented to the town of Stratford in 1888 by Lord Ronald Sutherland Gower.
Lord Ronald Charles Sutherland-Leveson-Gower (2 August 1845 – 9 March 1916), known as Lord Ronald Gower, was a Scottish Liberal politician, sculptor and writer from the Leveson-Gower family.
I always glad to reach this spot, when I see the statue, the Gower Gardens. I believe this is the start beautiful walk, along the River Avon.
Taken my lads many a times along this route, walking pass the canal boats stopping off for ice creams then over the bridge along the river leading to the Butterfly Farm. Who doesn’t like looking at the beauty of the butterflies?
Our lady is taking the same route, as I have many times with the family, on route to meet her sweet heart at the Boat House.
Hope you like my interpretation of Stratford upon Avon.
