  • This is a really impressive piece of art on Seaham front, which we saw at the start of our walk along the coast to Hartlepool. Seaham seems a nice quiet place with money spent on it in recent years.  more »
  • The work in making this sculpture is amazing. Tommy gets loads of lovely people visiting him. He does look so sad! There are plenty of nice eating place along the seafront to go to while you are there...  more »
  • This Tommy statue is really large and very impressive. It's beautifully made and gives a real sense of poignancy.  more »
  • Brilliant memorial in a lovely little area. A few decent shapes, cafes around to.
  • The is an amazing piece of art by sculptor Ray Lonsdale entitled 'Tonny eleven o one' which is the exact time the armistice was signed to end world war 1 on July 1st 1916. It is so detailed and perfect you can't imagine how long he took to make it. There are always people around it taking picture and touching it. Tommy is looking towards the cenotaph with a battle weary face. Beautiful and makes you think what other people have sacrificed so me and you can have free speech and democracy.
  • Incredibly moving
