Pride of place for Basil Watson’s Windrush monument at Waterloo station

A monument designed by the Jamaican sculptor Basil Watson will be erected at Waterloo station in London as a tribute to the Windrush generation.

The 12ft-high statue, chosen from a shortlist of four designs, will be of a man, woman and child dressed in their Sunday best and climbing a mountain of suitcases hand-in-hand. It will be unveiled on Windrush Day on June 22, 2022.
