Orchid sculpture at Newton Aycliffe :: Shared Description

Commissioned by Great Aycliffe Town Council in 2009 as part of an extension to the Great Ayclife Way, the 4m high sculpture was created by Brian Russell of Little Newsham Forge LinkExternal link . The sculpture depicts a common blue butterfly resting on an orchid, both of which can be found here during the summer months.

Great Aycliffe Town Council have been managing areas around the Town as wild flower meadows, including this location on Greenfield way near Newton Aycliffe railway station. Wild flower meadows are managed by allowing the natural plants to flower and disperse their seeds before cutting and removing the vegetation in later summer. By doing this, the seed bank will improve over several seasons producing a richer show of flowers year on year.
