142/365 Heads

This is part of a sculpture on Friargate in Derby. I have driven past these heads so many times and finally went to photograph them today and find out via the wonderful www who put them there and why:

"This is the reform bill heads sculpture, by Timothy Clapcott, and was installed in 2000 as part of the Sustrans development of the National Cycle Network. Derby City Council and Sustrans contributed equally to the commission, to help give the route identity and help cyclists and pedestrians orientate themselves. The heads are crowded together, jostling and jeering, reminiscent of the 1821 Reform Bill riots."

We visited Roland & Suzanne (see 102/365) this afternoon, well, actually, we only went down to see the new kittens ;0) More kitten-fest pics here.
