The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

'Fetch' Returns Home!

You will recall that on 12 January Matthew Morris, Estate Manager at Bolesworth Castle, reported that 'Fetch' was at the Vets!

The 'dog' forming part of Shona Kinloch's scuplture 'Fetch' is located at the edge of the Flacca field.

Yesterday, a Tattenhall resident just happened to be in the right place at the right time when, following the visit to the Vets, 'Fetch' was reinstated by local workmen.

For those of you who are not familiar with the bronze sculptures that are located throughout the village of Tattenhall and which were commissioned by Anthony Barbour, then CLICK HERE to read the full story on our local History Website.

Anthony Barbour is remembered throughout Tattenhall, not least in terms of the sculptural legacies which were commissioned and installed under his close guidance.

The 3 sculptures are:

* 'Fetch' by Shona Kinloch (this sculpture is sometimes referred to as 'Man and Dog')

* 'The Lute Player' by Peter Lyell Robinson (located in Barbour Square)

* 'Don't Let Go' by Ben Panting (located at Chowley Oak Business Park)

It is doubtful that villages comparable in size to Tattenhall, can boast 3 sculptures which seek to challenge, inspire, inform and delight local residents and visitors alike.
