Beyond Harvest
Beyond Harvest
This tall statue in the Cornmarket mall is by sculptor Colin Lambert, and when unveiled at the opening of the mall in 1990, it featured a small bronze mouse at its bottom corner. Sadly, this was stolen shortly afterwards, and has not been replaced.
The statue depicts corn sacks with a likeness of a young girl, Amy Flower, perched on the top. As an 18year old girl during the 1870s, Amy accompanied her brother James from their farm at Chilmark to Warminster corn market. Whilst playing around the corn sacks, she caught the eye of a 38 year old widower, William Stratton, from Kingston Deverill, who was smitten and married her in 1873. This happy marriage lasted for fourteen years until Amy died of pneumonia. She had eight children , only four of which survived her. As far as I am aware, relatives of Amy still live in Kingston Deverill.
