Chainsaw Carvings in the Park

As you walk around the Park, you will see several examples of Carrie Yuen's work. These were all created using chainsaws of different sizes. There's the commemorative seat near the Visitors' Centre and the fence-top carvings in the top car park that are much loved by children.

Another of Carrie's creations is a seat on the far side of Grebe Lake. This commemorates the life of Michael St John Booth, who died in action during the Normandy landings in 1944 at the age of 21. This is one of many commissions that enhance the landscape, not only here but around the UK and overseas.

Her work not only enhances visitor enjoyment of the Park, it illustrates in a very practical way the beautiful use that artists can make of a natural resource, timber.
