When you drive past this it looks big, but you really appreciate how huge this sculpture is when you get to it. Well worth a visit and the views are great too, plenty of free car parking on site.

Great place to visit. You don’t need more than about half an hour but parking is limited. You can go at different times and not be able to park. Stunning sculpture and good write up on how it was made
