Salop Leisure introduce eagle scuplture
Dewi the Dragon, an 11ft high metal dragon, became a popular tourist attraction at the Shrewsbury motorhome dealer, but last month he moved to his new home on the Cambrian Coast. Click here to see our news story about the dragon's new home.
He now guards the entrance to Min-y-Don Holiday Home and Touring Park, which nestles below the famous Harlech Castle.
Salop Leisure’s managing director, Mark Bebb, promised a spectacular replacement and this week a giant golden eagle sculpture with a 30ft wingspan landed on his perch at the entrance to the company’s sales centre, situated alongside Shrewsbury bypass.
Both the eagle and the dragon are the creations of Anthony ‘Fred’ Peacock, a talented artist at Marche Studios at Ford, near Shrewsbury.
The eagle is 14ft high, weighs 1,580kg and took 2,940 hours to create from sheet metal.
