About the Project

The Seaglam Project was started to raise the profile of Seaforth Village, five miles north of Liverpool,by installing a memorial to W. E. Gladstone, four times Prime Minister of Great Britain, who had lived there for 17 years from 1813 to 1830.

The memorial would be a tourist attraction only half a mile away from Anthony Gormley's famous installation on Crosby Beach called Another Place or more familarly by locals as The Iron Men which is visited by thousands.

Funds for the memorial were raised by voluntary effort and additional funding has been provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
