Sir Joseph Banks Sculpture on the Spa Trail ~ Woodhall Spa ~ Lincolnshire

Sir Joseph Banks Sculpture on the Spa Trail ~ Woodhall Spa ~ Lincolnshire 

This magnificent steel sculpture is one of a number of artworks along the Spa Trail. The Spa Trail is a foot- and cycle-path which runs about 7km from Sandy Lane, Woodhall Spa through to the crossroads in the centre of Horncastle. It coincides over its length with the Viking Way, a 237 km long-distance path which runs from the Humber Bridge to Oakham.

This sculpture is one of a series of three crafted by blacksmiths at Anwick Forge in 2010. They celebrate the work of the locally born Sir Joseph Banks, the eminent botanist who accompanied Captain James Cook's first South Pacific expedition on board HM Bark Endeavour in 1768. This particular sculpture depicts a grey heron, a coot and two mallards - all typical of the wildlife to be found along the adjoining disused Horncastle Canal

Hi Steve,

Nice capture of these birds.
I guess metal theft and vandalism are not big problems in these parts.

Hello Peter one of several metal sculptures in this area and being a little remote it is indeed a wonder they do not go missing one night
