Emily Williamson Statue

There is a plan for a statue of Emily Williamson, the founder of the Society for the Protection of Birds, which eventually became the RSPB, the UK’s largest conservation charity. It all started with her inviting friends for tea at her home in Didsbury so the statue will be erected in Manchester.

Several versions of the statue have been commissioned and you can vote for your favourite at the web address below. You can also make a donation towards the cost of the statue, if you wish.
