Text for two sculpted resting points (‘Raptor’ and ‘Edge’) by artist, Alun Heslop, located on the Isle of Harty Trail, a cycle route through beautiful open countryside between Leysdown-on-Sea and the hamlet of Harty. Work began in 2011 and was installed during March 2012.
The text carved on to the resting points is a short poem in three parts entitled The Harty Triptych.
