Memorial to the Merchant Navy and Fishermen.

This Memorial is dedicated to the merchant seamen and fishermen who lost their lives in World War 2. The Swansea Merchant Navy Association took eight years to raise the money for the granite and marble memorial.

The memorial was designed by local sculptor Philip Chatfield.
