Public artwork



Just next to the path that leads up to the Common a new wooden sculpture has appeared.  It's one of several pieces of street furniture and art that has been commissioned by the local residents' association of a housing estate on the edge of the village.

Sheffield conurbation is one of the greenest cities in the U.K. with many open spaces and woodlands having been preserved for the public's enjoyment.  Sadly, some trees have had to be felled when they have become unstable and, thankfully, new saplings have been planted.  It's good to know that these sculptures were created locally from wood that had only been taken from trees that needed to be cut down for safety reasons.
