Horses, bulls, fish, mermaids and men, all larger than life, inhabit the rambling garden – their spectacular forms crafted from rusty brown and gleaming silver spanners.

Despite their odd-shaped constituent parts, the intricate sculptures are superbly proportioned, giving them a strangely life-like quality.

John’s other great passion is birds, and his rambling garden is dotted with enclosures housing brightly coloured and often rare species.
