County Square, Ulverston
A bronze statue immortalising the comedy genius of Laurel and Hardy was unveiled in the Cumbrian town of Ulverston on Sunday 19th April 2009 where Stan Laurel was born. Fundraisers spent 10 years raising £60,000 for the sculpture which was placed outside the Coronation Hall theatre.
Hardscape collaborated with Cumbria County Council on the project and supplied violet mix porphyry paving and Royal White granite kerbing to the scheme. The statue was designed and created by Graham Ibbeson who is also known for his work on previously immortalised statues of Eric Morecambe in Morecambe, Benny Hill in Southampton and Les Dawson in Lytham St Annes.
