Drove past it today. I grew up just down the road. It must have been there 10-15 years now.

We do some stuff for BP. I'll make a couple of calls and see what comes up.

Dear all, sorry for the late reply...


I was with the Countryside Service at Eastleigh when this was carved. It was carved by Paul Sivell: http://www.thecarvedtree.co.uk/


He came over from the Isle of Wight.


Hope this helps, I aim to respond to any follow-up queries within 4 years this time.


Further information is provided on Eastleigh's Public Art strategy:
