The Giant's Chair
The Giant's Chair
Built by local artist Henry Bruce and erected on his own land in 2006, the Giant's Chair sculpture proved incompatible with the Dartmoor National Park Authority who demanded it be removed on the grounds it was attracting "too many visitors". Needless to say, many people campaigned for it to remain on site but after a stay of execution the artwork was removed in 2010 and is currently thought to be in storage.
