Royston Vasey – A local town for local people

tubsIf you are a follower of “The League of Gentlemen” BBC black-comedy TV series, you will recognize this sculpture, and as you know, sculpture is an important form of art.

This sculpture appears at the beginning of each episode. (Some of you may have been referred to this page from my snow-domes page, others who have come across this page, may want to view my snow-dome page). Now, getting back to the sculpture, this is actually the city of Hadfield War Memorial, situated on Station Road and Railway Street, Hadfield, Derbyshire.  The obelisk supporting the statue. commemorates those from Hadfield who lost their lives in the two major world wars.
