When we were in Shropshire we visited the British Ironworks Centre & Shropshire Sculpture Park just outside Ostwestry. The place is described on Wikipedia as “a forge, silversmiths and bric-a-brac shop”.
The grounds are full of (metal) sculptures, mainly animals, but some human ( or humanoid ) forms. There is, apparently, a gorilla made of spoons – I don’t think he is the one show below – but there is also the Knife Angel – constructed from “100,000 knives, blades, swords and other weapons used in violent crime from across 43 Police Forces in the United Kingdom.” ( Source : Wikipedia ). The knives were collected as the result of a nationwide knife amnesty.

These final two shots are of deer sculptures, part of the outdoor display at the centre.
We visited on a very wet Friday. I’d love to go back in the sunshine!
