sculpture trails in the east


We’ve featured a great number of public sculptures across the region in Culture365, and in this post, we’re taking a closer look at a way to join them all together, with sculpture trails in the East.

The Recording Archive for Public Sculpture in Norfolk and Suffolk (RACNS) is a project that aims to make a record of all of the superb sculpture in the East. Started in 2006 with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the archive contains entries by Richard Cocke, with photographs by Sarah Cocke.

The sixteenth edition of the archive was published in 2013, but monuments are regularly re-photographed to keep the content up to date.

Trails that cross the East are downloadable from RACNS, and feature both area-specific and themed routes.

Plan a trip to tackle a few of the routes, and use Visit East Anglia to find out where to eat, where to stay, and what else to do while you’re in the area.
