Sculpture description:
a simple pillar 5m tall of sweet chestnut, this sculpture stands in a remote spot beside the River Witham. Alluding to the once meandering course of the river in feminine curves the sides of this sculpture are carved with a line from Tennyson`s "The Brook"; "For men may come and men may go, but I go on forever"
