Sculptor Jon Edgar’s 2.5 tonne Portland stone sculpture commemorates ‘The Rise of Northwood’ and the history of the area. Throughout 2015 the stone will be moved to different locations within the Slindon Estate where Jon will continue to develop the artwork which will take one year to complete. Once in its complete form the sculpture will be returned to Northwood where it will permanently watch over the growing woodland.
