Putney sculpture trail
The Putney Sculpture Trail features a total of nine near life-sized figurative sculptures and is believed to be unique to London.
It was installed in the summer of 2008, but began life much earlier. Some 20 years before nationally recognised sculptor Alan Thornhill donated the sculpture 'Load' to the people of Putney which was installed close to Putney Bridge.
In the winter of 2005 Thornhill approached the Putney Partnership with the offer of further sculptures. The Partnership developed the idea of a sculpture trail with the sculptor.
Successful funding applications were made to
Western Riverside Environmental Fund and Wandsworth Council to enable the trail to be implemented, with help from local landowners, funding bodies, various council departments and specialist contractors.
The result of these efforts provides a lasting legacy for the people of Putney.
All those involved in the project hope that residents, workers and visitors to Putney enjoy the wide variety of works which comprise The Putney Sculpture Trail.
The sculptor asks you to view the sculptures with an open and enquiring mind, without preconceptions of either form or meaning.
