Queen Edith’s Walks – No.1: The Public Art Walk

The Queen Edith’s Community Forum has published a free, 32-page booklet called “Summer in Queen Edith’s”, with local walks and activities for all the family.

This is one of a number of walks produced as part of the Summer in Queen Edith’s booklet in July 2020. You can find out more here about the booklet and the other walks and activities in it.

When a new housing estate or employment site is built, the developer often has to commission some ‘public art’ which is supposed to relate to the site in some way and make it more attractive to people using the space. The stars here indicate some local pieces of public art. Can you find them? Do you think they’ve achieved what was intended?
