© Worth Park Friends 2024
Officially opened on 3rd April 2017 The Sussex based sculptor Simon Groves, who created also our Time Line Totem, carved the three cows from a 180-year old oak tree, which came from the Petworth estate. The Montefiores kept prize-winning cattle at Worth Park. Buildings remaining from the large estate complex are still standing today on Grattons Drive. The sculptures have been erected on front of the ha-ha, an unobtrusive gardening feature, which had been used for many years (e.g. mentioned in Jane Austen novels) to keep cattle and deer out of the formal gardens.
