Sir Robert Peel MP

1788-1850

Sir Robert Peel was Prime Minister twice between 1834-1835 and 1841-1846. He is most famous for establishing the police force as we know it today. He also oversaw improvements in working conditions and this made him popular in the industrial towns of Lancashire.  Peel Park was named after Sir Robert Peel and a statue was erected onsite in his honour following his death in 1850.
