About this spot
The statue of Edward Colston is a bronze statue of Bristol-born merchant Edward Colston (1636–1721), which was toppled on 7 June 2020, during the global protests following the killing of George Floyd in the United States. The statue was later dumped into Bristol harbour. The statue's plinth remains empty officially, but a number of unofficial art installations have appeared in its place.
