I saw these in Austria and was reminded of Kew’s Chihuly exhibition which starts next week. I see visitors there recently have had a sneak preview of some of the pieces as they were being assembled.
I made do with the advert I saw on the Tube 😉
I can’t wait to see it 🙂
There’s a fascinating set of plaques along Minehead harbour wall, with room to sit and stare awhile to look for the answers to the puzzles posed alongside (as well as what each piece represents).
Here’s some information – I would have loved to hear the sea shanties. We have sung the Halsway Carol at choir as in Halsway Manor mentioned below.
Distinctive sculptures mark each end of the South West Coastal Path, currently the longest walking trail in England* at over 600 miles. This is the one found at Minehead and was put in place in 2001.
* = there is a project underway to create a coastal path around the whole of Britain. The Wales Coast Path has now superseded this one at around 870 miles and Wales is currently the only country in the world with a path around its entire coastline.
Twister is the name of the sculpture in front of the council offices by the river.
