After many weeks of planning, five of Tony Hillier’s statues have joined Truffle the pig in finding new homes around the villages.
As many of you will know, Truffle moved to his new location at the Community Orchard in Manor Field last weekend, and over the past two days the Camel, Andy Cap, Grandfather and Grandson, Man and Dog and the Spider have also been on their travels and arrived at their new locations.
Their new locations are as follows:
Camel – at the entrance to the village, next to the B1049 and the Coppice
Andy Cap – Clay Close Lane Pocket Park
Grandfather and Grandson – Cottenham Road and the B1049 junction
Man and Dog – Homefield Park
Spider – in a tree on the Village Green (see if you can find him!)
Some of the statues have temporary fencing around them while they settle in, and on the signs on each one you will find some links using the app What3Words to the next two nearest statues. This is a free app to download and maps the whole world into three metre squares using three random words – it is a very exact location tool, and currently being recommended by the emergency services.
Later in the year we are hoping to link these and other art installations together into an art trail, so you can wander round the villages finding the sites.
