We have been dismantling our sculpture trail "Stourhead will never forget" which we installed at the National Trust property in Wiltshire to commemorate the effect of the First World War on the community. The band, that was floating on a lake, is now rehomed on terra firma in the Scraptors' sculpture mad garden. The cannon above, an element in the nursery installation representing the childhood of Harry Hoare, has also bee rehomed in the garden Anthony has added an alien guardsman. The wheels started life as patio heaters for outside areas of a pub. The frog in the background was made by Anthony for the Recycled Sculpture Show at the London Wetlands Centre which he curated in 2009. The skin has a mosaic of mobile phone dummies.

There are now six installation at Stourhead the National Trust property in Wiltshire in the sculpture trail "Stourhead will never forget." This commemorates the effect of World War 1 on the community. We have commemorated Ebenezer Stone, a stable lad, who lost both legs in the war with a giant bike because he made his own before 1914. There is an installation showing a landscape morphing from Arcadia to Armageddon. We have commemorated Gallipoli and the Middle East where local men in the Dorset Yeomanry fought. A floating band recalls the entertainments for convalescent troops at Stourhead and also the scratch bands formed by soldiers on all sides in the war.
The trail remains in place until November 2017,the centenary of Harry's death.A brochure is available at the visitor centre at Stourhead.

There are the sorts of toys a small boy might play with. But there are hints of his untimely death at the age of 29 in a battle at Mughair Ridge in Palestine in November 1917. He was trying to rescue the horses. the trail remains in place until November 2017 and a leaflet is available from the visitors centre.
