A perfectly ordinary statue that is strangely placed next to a crazy golf course. No one in their right mind would travel to see this!

Although we knew this was here it was a lovely suprise to suddenly see it. We posted for pics and the children had great fun touching it and getting its scale. Lovely and poingnant reminder of all those years ago and Filey of the past.

Couldn't resist taking another closer look at this imposing statue when here at Easter. Imposing and a reminder of the fishing industry in the area. A reminder that fishing was once a thriving industry, but now the town only has a few boats.

It's not a trip to Filey unless we measure how much the kids have grown against the statue! It's a beautiful piece of artwork

This is a really grand sculpture standing tall overlooking the bay. If you walk along the promenade you will find him close to the crazy golf. There is an information stand with more details next to him.
