The original otter
The original otter
This beautiful bronze otter was the original at the Otter’s Pool on the Dee, under the auspices of the Forestry Commission. The original bolts were steel and soon began to rust. They were to be replaced by stainless steel ones but, before that could be done, in the second half of the 1980s, it was stolen. Thanks to Chris Newman for this information.
