The Ellesmere Sculpture Trail is made up of sculptures set in the unique and beautiful landscape of Ellesmere in North Shropshire. The pieces are created by international contemporary artists, commissioned by the Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative (ESi), and are made specifically in response to the location.

For each phase of the trail pieces are made using local materials and reflect the history and heritage of the landscape around Ellesmere. These sculptures are then added to the Ellesmere Sculpture Trail.
 
  
The trail provides visitors with a free and gentle tour of Ellesmere (mostly accessible by wheelchair and pushchair) taking in the uniquely attractive settings of the mere, the historic castle fields and canal.
 
See the Trail Map page for details of where to find the sculptures.
