Wells-next-the-Sea Horse Sculpture

02 February 2019

It's not everday you see the Wells-next-the-Sea Horse Sculpture

A horse sculpture in the sea is due to become a permanent attraction after a town raised £15,000 to buy it. Last month, a campaign to keep the Lifeboat Horse by artist Rachael Long in Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, was started by the harbour commissioners. Residents have been so keen to see the 10ft (3m) sculpture remain that local children have even been donating their pocket money to the cause. Harbour master Robert Smith said he was "thrilled" to hit the target.

But now it's been saved there's a good chance you will!

I was planning to call this AM but decided to send a preliminary note beforehand. I wonder if you remember us? We have had several wonderful trips (thanks to you) in England and Scotland and we were fortunate to meet you in Edinburgh in 2002 when we were walking with our sons, Tom and Andy. And so we are planning another walk for May, this time with just Andy. We want to repeat 3 of our days along the southwest Coastal Path. Andy will be giving a paper at Exeter on May 19th and then will be giving it again in London on the 24th. He mentioned that he would like to spend the three days between talks, walking along the Coastal Path and he asked if we might join him. Now we loved that trip so much so we said "yes" and now I am checking with you. We thought we would start in Minehead and end at Woody Bay. How does this sound?
