Jane Ashdown - Swan Seat / Lynchwood Seat

Swan Seat is a six metre long artwork which depicts a swan, her nest, and details from the watery fens. The seat is constructed from 1000 bricks which were carved before they were fired.

The seat provides a place to rest in a peaceful setting beside an attractive lake at Eyebury Quarry. 

The Peterborough Millennium Green Wheel is a continuous network of cycleways, footpaths and bridleways that provide safe, continuous routes around the city, through picturesque stone villages, the Fens and the scenic Nene valley. As part of the project, a number of sculptures were commissioned, including this work which is now part of the Peterborough Sculpture Trust's collection.
