16 Jan The Kingfisher Trail
The Kingfisher Trail
21 wonderful kingfisher sculptures which have been decorated by some of our most talented local artists will be displayed in various venues along The Kingfisher Trail, in and around the Cotswolds National Landscape.
Residents and visitors are invited to follow the trail in the summer of 2021, get out into nature and enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the Cotswolds region. The Trail is designed to bring businesses, arts and local communities together. At the end of the project all of these wonderful sculptures will be auctioned to art lovers and businesses. This will raise funds for the vital conservation work for projects that support children and young people in the Cotswolds.
In the west, the Severn Trail will follow the tributaries of the River Severn and the Cotswold Way along the dramatic escarpment and will include, romantic Sudeley Castle.
In the east, the Thames Trail will link stunning Cotswold villages and the waterways and tributaries of the River Thames.
The trail will be launched on the Spring Bank Holiday in May (31 May) and run until October half-term.
Each trail will have 10 magnificent kingfisher sculptures, painted by local artists. The 21st kingfisher – the flying kingfisher – will move to a new location each fortnight and could be found anywhere in the Cotswolds!
