On 1st August 1834 an appeal was launched in Hull for funds to erect a monument to William Wilberforce (24th August 1784 - 29th July 1833), his work led to the Slavery Abolition act of 1833. The 31 metre Greek Doric column topped with a statue of Wilberforce now stands in the grounds of Hull College, close to his birthplace, and close to the Hull University Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation.
