Situated along the hydro railings, the temporary exhibition features photographs of some of the marker stones that have been created by local artist Josie Webber as part of our human sundial project.
We had hoped to have the sundial installed on site by now, but social distancing rules have made it hard for us to complete the project. In the meantime, our the towpath exhibition is our way of sharing these beautiful pieces of art with local residents and visitors.
Each display includes information about the species featured on the marker stones. With huge thanks to Jean, Jenny and Kat who have written and researched and written about each plant and animal. We’ll also be shining a spotlight each species in a series of blogs on our website over the coming months.
All the flora and fauna featured were nominated for inclusion as part of our ‘Unlocking the potential of our river’ project, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund. We hope you enjoy our display next time you are passing by.
