Tree Sculpture on Borth & Ynyslas Beach

There are loads of planning notice signs up at the entrance to the beach here at Borth & Ynyslas for a proposed ‘Metal Cast Oak Tree’. According to the signs it will be located in the inter-tidal zone on the beach between Borth and Ynyslas (except they have spelt Ynyslas incorrectly!).

Planning Notice for Oak Tree Sculpture

From what we’ve seen elsewhere, the ‘cast metal oak tree’ is a proposed sculpture by Taliesin artist Robert Davies. It will be called ‘Tree’ and will be about 10 metres tall with a trunk about 60cm across. It looks as though it will be a winter tree with no leaves and windswept branches shaped by the prevailing SW winds. It’ll be located inline with the ends of the groynes about a mile north of the railway station and therefore about a mile south from our house.
