Lord Collingwood Monument - Tynemouth

Collingwood was born in Newcastle upon Tyne. His early education was at the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle. At the battle of Trafalgar, his ship, The Royal Sovereign was a fast sailer, mainly because its hull had been given a new layer of copper which lacked the friction of old, well used copper and thus was much faster. When not at sea he resided at Collingwood House in the town of Morpeth.
