Here are another few pics to add to the blog's catalogue of canalside sculpture. These can be seen alongside the Wey navigation at Guildford. What I particularly like about them is than they are carved in situ from standing trees.
I think this one is brilliant , although it took us a while to see what it was. Can you make it out?
I don't think the trees would be so keen of course. I suppose they might be horse chestnuts although I think not. The disease which is currently killing a lot of them off was well in evidence in this area when we passed through. What the future is for conkers I dread to think. It looks as though horse chestnuts may be going the way of elms. If so, better to be made into a sculpture than into firewood.
