The Chartist Commemorative Sculpture is appropriately located close to the now closed and boarded up Westgate Hotel where the Chartists barricaded themselves in to defy the authorities.

It is well worth visiting Newport to see these sculptures. They are in a class of their own with amazing detail.

You come across this series of sculptures on the high street and though the sculptures themselves are impressive and their location obviously important sadly the surrounding buildings and atmosphere are far more downmarket than the sculptures warrent.

It is right there is a commemoration of such a significant historic event, it is a major part of Newport's story. As others have commented, I feel you need to be aware of the history for the statue to have meaning.

Iconic piece of art in Newport, this sculpture is located in the center of town and it's something that catches the eye.

I am sorry to say this, but I am bored with sculptures in Newport which appear to be created at large cost. Not sure whether this cost much, but my wife abd i preferred the chartist mosaic which was destroyed by the council years back

These sculptures are a great memorial to the industry and commerce of this city. The sculptures are on the square in front of the former Westgate Hotel, which saw the Finale of the Chartist March
