The Denny Treasure Trail is one of 5 permanent public art commissions for the 2018 regeneration of Denny town centre near Falkirk. Commissioned by Falkirk Council as part of a 7.6 million pound regeneration programme, the history of Denny’s people, industry and natural environment is told through a series of small sculptures made in stainless steel, treated oak, cast iron and cor-ten steel. Chestnut seeds, foundries and mining amongst other stories are subtly blended to create a journey across the new town square and out beyond to the edges of the town.

Discovery Oak symbolises the oak stern post of Scott’s Antarctic ship Discovery. Cut from a tree in Herbertshire Park in Dunipace over the River Carron, the sails are at once a frozen sea and an oak leaf. The ship is mounted on a horizontal treated oak block, symbolic of the stern post itself. Stainless steel/oak.

Sculpture made in Denny at Blueton Fabricators.
