Lion and Unicycle
Lion and Unicycle
Sculpture in the garden at Stoke Mandeville station, recalling the early British Railways emblems involving a heraldic lion and a railway wheel. The first version, in use from 1948 to 1956 depicted the lion astride a wheel and was commonly known as the 'Lion and Unicycle' or 'Ferret and Dartboard'. From 1956 a revised version showed the lion grasping the wheel on a crown. There are several other sculptures in the garden.
