Childe of Hale bronze statue
In 1996, Phil Bews carved John Middleton, Childe of Hale statue out of a dead beech tree and this proved so popular that when it became diseased and was removed, a bronze statue was commissioned. Original photograph and story LinkExternal link
Designed by sculptors Phil Bews and Diane Gorvin, a bronze life-size statue was sited on the green outside Hale Village’s Manor House in April 2015.
There are two life-sized portraits of John Middleton in existence, one can be seen in Speke Hall while the other hangs in Brasenose College, Oxford.
