General Information

National Grid Ref SJ852516 for the Walrus and National Grid Ref SJ852521 for the spitfires

R.J. Mitchell designed 24 aircraft including light aircraft, fighters, bombers, several seaplanes and flying boats such as the Supermarine Walrus and Supermarine Stranraer. However, he is best remembered for his work on the Supermarine Schneider Trophy series of racing aircraft culminating in the Supermarine S.6B and the Supermarine Spitfire, this monument depicts a spitfire from two different perspectives, and also a sealion or walrus flying boat. He was born close to the site hence their construction.

They can be found on Reginald Mitchell Way in Tunstall, near Stoke on Trent, constructed in the mid 1990's but are currently in need of a bit of TLC.
