About the Winterton Sculpture Trail

This summer we are hosting the Winterton Sculpture Trail, an exciting community arts project.

During 2017, we commissioned the production of 26 tractor and owl sculptures to form the basis of a sculpture trail for the town of Winterton. Since then, Winterton community groups, schools and organisations have been involved in creating 26 stunning sculptures; each one given a blank canvas to create their own piece of art, with the guidance of local artists Fiona Caley and Mandy Keating in a series of workshops.

The 26 Tractor and Owl Sculptures will be on display around Winterton from Friday 25th May to Friday 14th September 2018. Sculptures are located in community hubs, and in gardens of Winterton residents. Three Sculptures are homed inside building but can be viewed from outside, with the exception of one sculpture located at Winterton Library which can only be viewed during the library’s opening hours.

The Winterton Sculpture Trail is free and fun to follow at any time! If you don’t have a copy of the Winterton Sculpture Trail map, you can download and print your own copy here.  

We ask that visitors do not encroach on private property and respect the gardens of residents who are kindly displaying sculptures, but most of all, enjoy the trail and share in the pride of the groups and individuals who have contributed to the artwork on display. The trail is free and fun to follow at any time!
