Stone Gateway - Sculpture by Peter Price
Location: Berryhill Greenway
Installed: 2000
Commissioned by: Stoke on Trent City Council

Three gateways were constructed (Stone, timber and metal). The Stone Gateway is the nearest to the Scheduled Ancient Monument, and was intended to commemorate the earliest history of the area before it was settled by farmers.

This explains the use of stone, the presence of the animals, the hunting scene, and possibly the standing figure in robes (it may be a monk or a nun). However, it cannot explain the depiction of the young girl in T-shirt and shorts, the man in the bobble hat, or the melting watch. The last of these could be an allusion to the idea of a time line.
