The Council has received many positive comments welcoming the new harbourside sculpture. The design of the feature is based around important aspects of Maryport’s development, including: its Roman history; the influence of Humphrey Senhouse; mining; railways; shipbuilding; & other maritime connections including The Titanic & The Bounty.
At over two metres in height, the sculpture stands out with its silver finish, particularly when the sun is low in the sky & it’s silhouette style designs can be appreciated. Similarly, in the evening, when its lighting system comes to the fore, it can be seen form many aspects of the town. The sculpture was designed & built by Fire Pit Design & funded by Allerdale Borough Council. We hope it will add to the attractions of the area & help bring in visitors, as well as being enjoyed locally.
The Council has been running a competition seeking the public’s help in giving a name to the sculpture. A winner is due to be announced in early November!
