6. More Information
Situated adjacent to the Moravian settlement this sculpture of a lady and boy highlights both the Moravian settlement and its importance to the history of both Droylsden and the borough. The settlement was founded in 1785 by Benjamin La Trobe as a centre for evangelistic work for the Church in the Manchester area. The facade of the settlement and its buildings remain little changed as a result it is popular location for both film and TV appearing in Sherlock Holmes, Peaky Blinders and others.
