Ramblers Cultural Day Part 1: Park Grange woods sculpture trail to Meadowhall

I walked with the Sheffield ramblers. We caught a bus from Meadowhall to Kimberworth,Rotherham. We entered wood / parkland called Park Grange woods. Immediately we saw the first of 10 naked people.

The ideas for the sculptures came from a workshop the sculpture Marcela Livingston did with imaginative children. The children’s poet laureate Mat Black, sourced or wrote a poem for each sculpture, sadly as the poems were on metal plaques, all but the first had been stolen.

1. Zena the rock climber

2 Stan the stable boy. A shy character.

3. Morris minor. The children developed a whole story about how he found a pot of gold digging whilst digging the gold. Then used it to fund a sailing trip to far away lands.

4. Crow girl. She had wood n hollow legs. She was a thrift who hid stolen loot in her legs. No one ever dared ask about her childhood.

5. Yazier. A nature lover, perhapas she is knelt to look at a plant.

6 Slip hand Suzy. She is an old lady, having a rest after long day at a pottery wheel.

7. 2 dinners ignacioys . A Monk who likes food.

8. Freddie firey fork maker. A good dancer.

9. Retus young ambitious solider. Good watcher and bit of a worrier.

10. Revs Goddess of bikes. Use wheels to defend against armies. One time she cut all heads off whole army and they ran around like headless chickens.

A bonus for me was coming back to Meadowhall, behind the Travelodge, I refound one of Sheffield’s elephants 🐘 (Technicolour pachyderms that was originally on Devonshire green.

A bonus of walks finishing at Meadowhall, is the chance to appreciate the artistry of a Godiva sculptural Hot chocolate.

It was handy having a new bag from Lucy Locket Sheffield , around my waist so could get to my phone easily to take pictures, whilst keeping phone safe.
