Anna Gillespie’s Ship
The Morecambe Bay Partnership website has recently announced this sculp[ture in Half Moon Bay. This is a quote from that site.
From the earliest Roman and Viking settlers, to travellers boarding Irish Sea ferries in the present day, Heysham, Lancashire has long been a strategic point of arrival, departure and human settlement. Half Moon Bay, in sight of Heysham Port, has been confirmed as the location for a new sculpture, Ship by renowned artist, Anna Gillespie. Providing new focus on Morecambe Bay‘s landscape and maritime heritage, the artwork reflects the importance of seaborne trade in bringing news, innovation and shaping the character of the area.
