The Crozier Monument in Church Square Banbridge, built in 1862,designed by W.J. Barre and statue and carvings by Joseph Robinson Kirk.
Banbridge town's most famous son was probably Captain Crozier of North West Passage fame who was born in 1796 at a large house in the town's Church Square. After the ill fated voyage to discover the North West Passage a monument was erected in church Square Banbridge to commemorate this hero. The pedestal was designed in 1862 by W.J. Barre of Newry, who designed the Ulster Hall and Albert Memorial in Belfast, whilst the statue was carved by Joseph Robinson Kirk, of Dublin costing a total of £700.
