Tree bought back to life as beautiful sculpture in Newquay

A beautiful new sculpture has been unveiled in Newquay, designed to celebrate the Cornish town's links to the sea.

It is a fantastic twist of fate for the Monterey Cypress pine, which was ordered to be chopped down after a limb weighing a staggering two and a half tonnes fell from the area. Estimated to be between 110 and 125 years old, many were saddened by the decision to remove it from the drive of Belushi's Bar in the town. However, the stump of the tree has now been redesigned into a piece of art by a group of students and their lecturer at Truro College. Representing a wave and embossed with pilchard fish on its sides, it celebrates the town's former pilchard fish industry and its much documented surfing heritage.

If you are looking to stay in any of the nearby 5 star cottages in Cornwall in the coming months, why not come and discover this beautiful sculpture while you're there?
