Born the son of a Newcastle merchant, Collingwood first went to sea in 1761 and rose swiftly through the naval ranks as first the American War of Independence, and then the Napoleonic War, pitched him into a number of victorious encounters. His connection with Admiral Lord Nelson began in the 1770s and it was as Nelson's second-in-command at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 that Collingwood cemented his reputation, taking command of the British fleet after Nelson's death. After Trafalgar, he was created Baron Collingwood. He is buried in St Paul’s Cathedral. His greatest memorial is the Grade II* listed Collingwood Monument, paid for by public subscription and erected in 1845: a marble statue sculpted by John Graham Lough on a sandstone pedestal designed by John Dobson, which overlooks the mouth of the River Tyne.
