The statue sits about thirty feet from the site of the place of Wolsey’s birth. It’s a brilliant statue, which is full of detail. His outstretched right hand has often held various objects: drink cups; a pink cowboy hat, and many, many umbrellas - as if some passerby thought that the old boy needed keeping dry. I pass him every day on my way to work, and on my return home in the morning. I usually say “Morning, Tom”, as I pass. He’s that personable.
