Hull Stand | Raynor Brodie Dyson | STAND - Hull City Council
6000 poles commemorate individually the 6000 trawlermen from Hull who lost their lives in pursuit of their livelihood. Deep sea fishing was once this country’s most dangerous occupation. Hull, and its close knit communities, was shaped by this industry, yet during the last three decades traces of the port’s fishing heritage have all but disappeared.
An enclosure shelters groups on formal occasions, such as the Lost Trawlermens Day when floral tributes are cast into the river, and families or individuals visiting at times of personal significance. Competition 2013.
