"The tale of Peter Rabbit", High Head Sculpture Valley

  • Description

    "High Head Sculpture Valley http://highheadsculpturevalley.co.uk/ is an exciting development on a dairy farm near Ivegill. A number of outdoor sculptures have been sited in the floor of the Ive valley below the farmhouse and can be accessed by pathways. A cafe, gallery and workshops are housed behind the farmhouse. Children are provided for by a series of tableaux illustrating "The tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter. Reading from the right, we have "Mr McGregor came up with a sieve which he intended to pop over the top of Peter; but Peter wriggled out just in time, leaving his jacket behind him." and the next scene to the left reads "Peter rushed down the garden and jumped into a watering can. It would have been a beautiful thing to hide in, if it had not had so much water in it. Mr McGregor was sure Peter was hiding in the garden and started to look everywhere. Presently Peter sneezed 'Kertyschoo'. Mr McGregor was after him in no time."" Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2010.
