Metal Gateway - Sculpture by Phillip Hardaker
Metal Gateway - Sculpture by Phillip Hardaker
Location: Berryhill Greenway - cycleway at entrance to park nearest to Wadebridge Road
Installed: 2000
Commissioned by: Stoke on Trent City Council

Three gateways were constructed (Stone, timber and metal). The Metal Gateway is the furthest of the three Gateways from the Scheduled Ancient Monument, and thus reflects the most recent activity, namely mining and modern industry, in the area. The use of metal was part of the brief in that the material reflected the stage of human development on the site during its period as a centre of industrial activity.

This grey steel archway stands on two circular brick plinths either side of the path at one of the entrances into Berryhill Fields. It is decorated with animals and birds to be seen in the local area.

Two rabbits appear on either side of the arch, while along the top of the arch from left to right are a snail, two birds either side of an owl and a fish. A bat hangs from below the archway.
