Taking a Liberty

Taking a Liberty

It’s gone. As suddenly as it appeared, it disappeared. It represented all that was good about subversive art, crafted from the sweat and pocket of the unknown artist and christened The Stirchley of Liberty.

Along with the Smiley Rock of Trench Lock and Dawleywood, the Stirchley of Liberty has been consigned to the annals of Telfords history. A future post in Telford Memories and the lowest moment in the Shropshire Stars newsgathering operation.

Farewell Lady, you were a breath of fresh air.

    Last time I drove past, it was there, but the A-Z Atlas had been ripped off. I wasn’t sure if it was a deliberate part of the performance art or if someone had nicked it?
