Good location on the canal basin so can watch the boats. Whether it is a good likeness or not, I do not know as never met the man, so an average statue in an unusual pose.

Very nice location at Skipton canal basin. Nice place to sit and relax. You can hang your coat on the arm of this awful statue of a not very nice man and eat your fish and chips whilst watching the boats.

Great statue of a great man. You can sit and watch the boats go by and think of some of the great matches that Freddie played in.

A must for all cricket fans and a true legend, and Yorkshireman who wasn't afraid of speaking his mind. A fitting tribute in tranquil location.
