Sir Henry Royce Statue

Plans are being made to commission a statue of Sir Henry Royce in Knutsford, Cheshire. Rolls-Royce Motors support the idea for a lasting tribute to the great engineer to be constructed in Regents Street.

In 1962 a memorial window was dedicated to Sir Henry Royce in Westminster Abbey, the only time an engineer has been honoured at the Abbey.

The proposed statue in Knutsford will celebrate Henry Royce’s move to Brae Cottage, Legh Road, Knutsford, in 1898. The engineer often worked on his inventions in the cellar until the early hours.
