This magnificent sculpture of two large hands holds an unfolding map facing into the Severn Estuary which is close to the starting point of the 630 miles, South West Coastal Path. The young designer is Sarah Ward, who was studying at the time at West Somerset Community College.
From the front, of the grid of the map is open so that the sky and landscape can be seen and the north coast of Somerset is shown in cut-out metal. The rear of the map shows the whole route of the coastal path with Minehead and Poole to indicate the beginning and end of the path.
