Long John Silver Trust
The Long John Silver Trust has been formed to create an innovative sculpture of fiction's most famous rascal (he also happens to be Bristol's most famous pub landlord). This has evolved into a revolutionary idea for further artworks on Bristol's Harbourside that will tell the whole story of Stevenson's classic novel - THE BRISTOL TREASURE ISLAND TRAIL.

Robert Newton
Robert Newton played Long John Silver in the childrens' TV series.



If sailor tales to sailor tunes,
Storm and adventure, heat and cold,
If schooners, islands, and maroons,
And buccaneers, and buried gold,
And all the old romance, retold
Exactly in the ancient way,
Can please, as me they pleased of old,
The wiser youngsters of today:

--So be it, and fall on!
