Trail Guide (page 5)

Three sculptures by the canal were not part of the Ellesmere Sculpture Initiative's project for the Trail but were commissioned by the British Waterways in 2008 as 'gateway' pieces to Ellesmere for canal users.

They were made in Shropshire by BenchArt (artists Huw Powell Roberts and Ruth Gibson).

See their website www.benchart.org.uk

We are now pleased to incorporate their three pieces into the Ellesmere Sculpture Trail.
