  • Not enough signs nor sculptures. It’s very unclear where to start or finish so we just made the most of our walk by checking out the houses and the views of the water but as far as a sculpture trail goes even 1 star is too generous!
  • This is really not my cup of tea normally but thought I would give it a go. I did like it and enjoyed the walk. I started at the second station at the top of the hill. Some of the locations were a little trick which added to the enjoyment of trying to find them. I thought there were some other sculptures they could have added and made it longer. All in all it was a bit of fun, my wife and I enjoyed the journey.
