The Blitz Memorial
Between the 9th August 1940 and the 10th January 1942 Liverpool was subjected to sustain heavy bombing raids and many of the civilian population were killed or injured during this period.
As tribute in their honour sculpturer Tom Murphy designed the Liverpool Blitz Memorial. The final sculpture was cast in bronze and sited on the grounds of St Nicolas Church near the Pier Head.
