Hardly the Angel of Warwickshire
Jun 2021
Allegedly Englands greatest sculptor, the rust Angel of the North is well known. Whether the figure in Henley is contemplating diving in or not is the question.

As with much of Gormley's works, these are temporary instellations the intention to inspire and create thought. You can see why he put him there looking down into the water a lovely little spot of canalside vernacular architecture and waterway engineering to visit.

Lucky to have him
Mar 2016 • Couples
We went in search of this piece of sculpture after reading about it in the local paper. What a wonderful spot they have found, the water adds to the scene and you want him to come to life. Very lucky to have our own Gormley in our back yard.
Have been back a couple of times on walks along the canal side, he is becoming an old friend.

Quite a surprise t find a Gormley staring down at me
Feb 2016 • Couples
I was one of the only boats out on the canal last week and entering this lock from the bottom pound you come through a very tight and low bridge, so it was quite a surprise to encounter this art installation in the February dusk (we moored up just beyond) as this was the last lock of the day. I had no idea it was a Gormley until told by a local the next day. We live quite close to Another Place but this is so different. Its a great feature and nice to see a small village owning such an artwork.

Hidden away in a lovely spot

Not easy to find but a lovely spot. Head for Lowsonford. This is right at the lock opposite the Lock Keeper's Cottage and can be viewed from the bridge. Pleasant to stand and watch the barges on the canal. Roads are very narrow country lanes so take care.

Modern art meets old way of life.

We went to look at this sculpture, after it was featured in our local paper. We parked at the Fleur-de-Lys pub in Lowsonford (see separate review) and after our lunch walked down the road to the canal. It is a nice piece, although he does look as if he is contemplating jumping into the canal. There does not seem to be any information nearby telling you about the sculpture or that the artist is Sir Antony Gormley, so if you stumbled upon it by chance you may not know. Worth looking at if you are in the area. There is an old barrelled-roofed lock keepers cottage opposite the artwork which is also worth seeing. These cottages were built in the 1800's and I believe they are a unique feature of the Stratford-upon-Avon canal.

Hard to find but worth the effort....

It is a bit strange to find such a work of art standing by a narrow canal in the heart of Warwickshire. It’s a nice piece of art worth we stumbled on by sheer luck. No close parking.

Gormley at his best
Aug 2015 • Couples
A brilliant and moving work of art which should have a permanent place at this location. Only spoiled by a graffito by which some mindless dimwit has defaced the work.
