This statue is almost engrained in Loughborough folklore however isn't really aesthetically pleasing and a newer modern statue really wouldn't go amiss as it's right in the town centre.

We always try to find little quirky things when we visit new places. I found the sock statue online but it took us ages to find because it was lost in the bustling market. We found it difficult to get a photo of it due to boxes and metal frames being in the way which was a real shame. Glad we found it though, the council should make more of this statue, it's a bonus for visitors of the town

This rather ugly state stands at one end of the market place and totally stands out as a feature - when the market is here two days a week it is totally lost
