Along the Whiston Incline - The Huskisson Memorial

 The Huskisson Memorial, Parkside

The memorial was erected as a “tribute of respect”, following the death of the Right Honourable William Huskisson, MP for Liverpool, who was killed at Parkside on the opening day of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, 15 September, 1830. 

The central tablet was badly damaged in 1990 and was subsequently replaced by a new marble plaque, funded by Railtrack North West, the Railway Heritage Trust and the Newton 21 Partnership. 

The Memorial is a Grade II listed structure. The original tablet is now in the care of the National Railway Museum, York.
