Art on the Sandstone Trail
Several specially commissioned sculptures can be spotted along the Sandstone Trail.
Two specially commissioned sculptures celebrate either end of the trail. A sandstone arch in Jubilee Park, Whitchurch, at its southern end, complements a steel and sandstone obelisk outside The Bear’s Paw in Frodsham, at the northern end of the Trail.
Other public art along the Trail includes a boar-shaped steel and ceramic seat in Nettleford Wood, Delamere.
Several attractive sandstone milestones or marker posts at key points also mark the Trail. Each features the Sandstone Trail name and symbol, the place name and distances to and from Frodsham and Whitchurch at either end of the Trail – for example: ‘Manley Common – Frodsham 9km, Whitchurch 46km’.
For huge timber, metal and sandstone sculptures in a lovely garden setting, Mount Pleasant Gardens on the Yeld at Kelsall, just off the Sandstone Trail really are a ‘must visit’. There’s even a summer tearoom and a full-time, professional sculptor’s workshop in the grounds.
