A Sculpture Walk to celebrate Harlescott Grange where King Henry camped before winning the Battle of Shrewsbury in July 1403

The Sculpture Walk is designed to stimulate gentle exercise while at the same time helping people appreciate the historical significance of Harlescott Grange through six thematically linked sculptures.

The one mile Sculpture Walk is a waymarked, circular route which you can join at any point. 

Each of the sculptures interprets a particular theme. Click here for a map of the Walk.

The 35 pavement 'waymarkers' were individually designed by members of the local community.



The sculptures were created by local artists who found inspiration and practical assistance through their work with people from local schools and groups including:

  • The Grange Secondary School
  • The Grange Junior School
  • The Learning Pocket Art Group
  • Greenacres Primary School
  • The Grange Youth Centre



Special thanks are due to parents and young people involved with Surestart Shrewsbury, The Grange Youth Centre and NCH 'after school' clubs.


This website includes photos from the initial designs to the end installations of 'The King's Table' and 'The Eve of the Battle', including input from local school pupils.



This site is dedicated to Mike Stokes, former Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Archaeologist who died early in 2005 before he could see the completion of the Sculpture Walk, to which he contributed so much.
