We went to Stourhead, the National Trust gardens in Wiltshire, to discuss possible Scraptor installations as part of the Trust's presentation from 2014 of how the First World War affected the estate and the community. There will be exhibits in the house about Harry Hoare, the heir to the property. The intended Scraptors contribution would be eye-catching outside installations illustrating aspects life before the War and how it changed for all in the community. There was for example Ebenezer Stone, a groom in the stables, who lost both legs in the war. One of the planned installations will be about him. Like everything this project requires funding and sorting that is the next stage.
The image above shows an officer of the Dorset Yeomanry by the Pyramids. Harry was killed with that regiment in the Middle East.

We have started on our Bird Henge. We have erected a giant Owl Idol in the Scraptors sculpturemad garden . The bird headed High Priests will be in procession towards it. The beak is a bonnet from a Volkswagen Beetle car and the eyes are the tops of patio heaters. The Bird Henge will be beside a public path and we will create a circular online ramblers trail, the Bird Henge Trail,which will pass by it.

Our next project a Bird Henge of giant birds to be added to the sculpturemad garden will be accompanied by an online circular Birdhenge Trail for ramblers to go on the website of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty www.ccwwdaonb.org.uk The AONB has given a grant to the project. We are researching the places of interest on the trail which will start and finish at the Prince Leopold pub in Upton Lovell in Wiltshire and go past Bird Henge (yet to be built by the Scraptors) Upton Lovell church has this 1717 royal coat of arms from the reign of George 1 with a lion sticking its tongue out and a grinning unicorn. There is also an effigy of a mediaeval knight.

www.ccwwdaonb.org.uk to cover some of the costs of building a Bird Henge near Stonehenge on Anthony's land as part of the Scraptors Sculpturemad Garden so we can now go ahead. This will be next to a public path and visible 24/7. There will be giant Wiltshire birds including the Great Bustard, the world's heaviest flying bird, which has been reintroduced into the county.
