Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846) anti-slavery campaigner. This plaque commemorates the historic meeting in 1787 of Thomas Clarkson, Landlord Thompson and Bristol sailors at the Seven Stars public house. The testimony provided by Thompson and the sailors to Clarkson was used as evidence in parliament and helped the abolitionists to build a successful mass movement against slavery.
