We spent a more than usually energetic couple of weekends following the trail, being drawn on from each new discovery to the next. Some are quite difficult to find but the hints on the website are very helpful. We traversed the trail with a wheelchair but it does require a degree of mobility to negotiate several kissing gates and a couple of stiles at the railway crossing.
Maxine King, who led the project and the children, who created the sculptures, have given the Lea Valley in this area a fascinating addition which deserves to become a popular family attraction. It is sad that that some misguided person has stolen the sculpture at the New Gauge (No 19). May we hope that it will be replaced?
The photographs below are of each sculpture in situ, which may be a help in locating some of the more concealed statues.
