Bellway unveils symbolic art work that captures the history of Fenny Stratford

A very special art work commissioned by housebuilder, Bellway has been unveiled in Fenny Stratford. The installation forms part of the public realm of Bellway’s Aqua development.

The installation by Doncaster based artist, Michael Johnson has been designed to symbolise the origins of Fenny Stratford’s name and to represent a milestone referring to Fenny Stratford’s position on the great Roman Road, Watling Street.

“The people of Fenny Stratford would have witnessed key moments in the history of Britain; Michael Johnson has captured a number of these events within the installation which are referred to in the bronze castings. Events such as the opening of the Grand Union Canal in 1805 which brought increased trade to the area are captured in a rope casting, similarly the coming of the railway and the many industries such as shoemaking and tailoring are all captured within the installation. The sculpture also incorporates images of marsh plants which were designed by children from Knowles Junior School,” confirmed Bellway’s Sales Director, Chris Edginton.
