Riverbank stories from a sculptured speaking bench

Talk of the Town is a completed project where we installed a sculptured speaking bench and way-markers in the form of the five native owls of the Stour Valley. The bench tells a variety of riverbank stories, created and narrated by local school children from Muscliff, connecting people with their local history and heritage.
