A small sculpture of ferrymen dipicting the ferrymen of the past. It isnt a lare structure and easily missed but wortha trip to see it along with the bridge of Brunel

What is the point of such a structure when it is so easily missed? It should have been far bigger. Waste of money

I score it high because it is different. Quaint too. Not quite weird. A bit light hearted maybe? Tongue in cheek even? In a drab and often too commercial world this is a welcome novelty.

It looked rusty but I don't think it was. The head and hair of the 'boatman' reminded me of the logo of the Wella Hair products range. The riveted on metal plates with the historical stories images and anecdotes seemed a bit mixed and patchy...More
