Horse sculpture near Nantwich Basin in Cheshire
Horse sculpture near Nantwich Basin in Cheshire
This superbly designed powerful structure is by the Shropshire Union Canal close to Nantwich basin, where the original Chester Canal terminated.

The sculpture, in wood and iron is by John Merrill and Julian Taylor. It was made from material salvaged from old lock gates. It is one of several sculptures celebrating the restoration work carried out to the Nantwich Embankment. The others are smaller, and were made by Nantwich students. Unfortunately they are already looking a little worse for wear. Some attractive children's poetry accompanies each work of art. A plaque detailing the works can be seen fifty metres south-east of the horse sculpture. LinkExternal link
