On your way into our main entrance, take a look at these beautiful driftwood sculptures by Heather Jansch.
Heather Jansch Bronze and Driftwood Horse, 2013
Artist Heather Jansch created these life-sized horse foals from two different materials: one is made from carefully chosen pieces of driftwood found on the beach, the other is a bronze cast.
Our original, much-loved driftwood horse, which usually stands at this spot, has grown so fragile that it is currently at the foundry being cast in bronze too, so that it’s immortalised forever. It will be back…
