Whale's Jawbone Arch in the grounds of Blyth Jex School
Whale's Jawbone Arch in the grounds of Blyth Jex School
Hundreds pass this unusual feature every day on their way down Constitution Hill to work in the City without ever noticing it. How did it get here, did it use to stand outside the 200 year old Whalebone Pub, was it a garden feature brought back from South America by Anna's brother Philip Sewell (who gifted his home for the school to be built), or a cast off from an old corset factory, all have been suggested. It was actually a gift to the Blyth Girl's Grammar by a former pupil who found it washed up on a beach, a testament to an inspirational Geography teacher, Miss Mary Keele.
