The sculpturemad garden of the Scraptors

video
This is our Youtube film of Anthony's two acre sculpturemad garden which has collaborative work by Anthony Wilson, Paul Boswell and Rachel Macleay. At the back of the garden is a forty feet long fence combining 3D  pieces and painted murals. Sheds and a double garage have murals and fixed sculpture. Hedges have become giant sculptures. The garden is always evolving and we are planning a Bird Henge which will be visible from a public path. Stonehenge is not far away and we will feature Wiltshire birds.
