New public art has popped up in Newton Abbot, highlighting our relationship with energy.
The sculptures in a number of settings in and around the town use wood from a 150 year old cedar tree that needed to come down in the district. They are adorned with symbols representing five sources of renewable energy, which are based on 35,000 year old cave paintings.
Transition Newton Abbot is behind the sculptures, as they aim to raise awareness about energy, and how it is at the heart of the heart of the economic and environmental challenges facing us today.
The 3m-tall sculptures after a design by Chris Amey with the steel bases made by blacksmith Rob Hills at Seale-Hayne, and have involved Newton Abbot Town Council, Teignbridge District Council and a whole host of volunteers to come to fruition.
The sculptures can be found at Forde House, opposite the railway station, near the Ogwell roundabout, at the Ashburton roundabout and at Bradley Lane
on the bend of the new road by Asda.
