Didsbury wood sculptors, Tim & Andy Burgess, were commissioned by The Friends of Didsbury Park and Manchester City Council, to produce a carving. "The owl and her babies" is located at the Wilmslow Road entrance to the park and was a gorgeous surprise when I first saw it. It's truely delightful from what ever angle you view it from....
All wood used by Andy is from trees that have been taken down as they are either dangerous, damaged or diseased and are locally sourced. This can result in a free standing log or a stump that is still in the ground. This carving has been created from a beautiful piece of oak that is still in the ground.
