I told her not to look round? – A Monday Mystery….

Basingstoke 1

 

This morning’s mystery photo was taken in a town not far from Camberley and there are two questions that spring to mind.  The first is obviously where? and the second has to be does anyone have any more info about this piece of sculpture?  There is no helpful sign nearby so I don’t have a subject matter let alone the name of its creator…..

  1. The website of the mystery town in question says this:

    The Church Stone – Michael Pegler
    Wote Street, 1994

    The silver grey granite sculpture in Wote Street is The Church Stone by Michael Pegler. Almost three metres in height, and weighing seven tonnes, it took two years to hand carve. The sculpture was produced specifically for the site to commemorate the Emmanuel Church, which stood nearby until 1969. The artist was inspired by the town’s Roman history and was keen to evoke a sense of introspection and contemplation through his work.
