The Long John Silver Trust was formed in 2003 after Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel “Treasure Island” was chosen for Britain’s first “Great Reading Adventure”. Initially the idea was to erect a statue of Bristol’s own Long John Silver, but it developed into the creation of the Treasure Island Trail – a unique series of dockside sculptures and images that tell the whole book’s story.
