£90,000 sculpture by David Annand celebrating one of Suffolk's most famous sons. The bronze is at the junction of Silent Street and St Peter's Street near to the spot where Wolsey may have lived.

It's a statue. People lay on it but don't lay on it please - it's not a climbing frame. It's in a nice area of town. It's a 30 second job.

Situated in what is known as the Saints area this statue is located just out of the main centre but within a street that has a number of individual shops and restaurants and provides a link through to the Waterfront area. Given the historical importance...More

I believe this to be the only really accurate statue of the subject I have seen. Though obviously an interpretation in itself. Very human and thought provoking.
