“The Sir John Barrow Monument (sometimes referred to as the Hoad Monument) was built in 1850 and stands proudly on Hoad Hill (436 ft/133 m) overlooking the market town of Ulverston. It was constructed to commemorate Ulverston’s famous son Sir John Barrow, who was born in Ulverston in Dragley Beck in 1764 and stands 100 ft (30.5 m) tall.
The Monument was constructed in the style of a former Eddystone Lighthouse to celebrate Sir John’s illustrious career as the Second Secretary to the Admiralty. It is an iconic symbol for the town and is famous throughout the Northwest. It is a grade 2* (star) listed building and is owned by the Sir John Barrow Trust which is part of Ulverston Town Council” For more exhaustive information SEE
