A life-size statue erected to commemorate Rochdale’s most famous daughter, Dame Gracie Fields, DBE. A comedienne and singer in the British Music Halls, she was the top box-office draw and the highest paid actress in Britain in the 1930s. Her northern, working-class girl character was a favourite during the inter-war years.
