Statue of Sir Grantley Adams

This statue, in honour and memory of Sir Grantley Adams, stands at the entrance to Government Headquarters on Bay Street on the outskirts of the capital city of Bridgetown.

One of Barbados' ten national heroes Sir Grantley was a great social reformer who fought tirelessly for the rights of Barbadians, especially the under-privileged. He was a highly respected lawyer who used the political arena as the vehicle to achieve his goals. Always working closely with local trade unionists, he introduced legislation to improve the wages and working conditions for labourers in Barbados.

Sir Grantley Adams was the first Premier of Barbados and served as the first and only Prime Minister of the West Indies Federation.
