The Bridlington Maritime Trail Gets a Boost from a New Sculpture
A new sculpture in Bridlington has rekindled interest in the already popular Maritime Trail. The sculpture of the Bridlington Anchorman has been unveiled as it sits proudly on top of the offices of the Bridlington Harbour Commissioners.
The Sculpture, which depicts an Anchorman, symbolises and celebrates the hard work of Bridlington Harbour over the years. Even today, the Anchorman is a real symbol of safety and a welcome home to a safe port.
The sculpture, which can be seen in Bridlington Harbour is easily visible on the Bridlington Maritime Trail.
The sculpture was designed and developed by Ronald Falck. He also designed and built the shepherd and sheep sculptures at the Dotterel roundabout. The sculpture was originally the brainchild of the West Street and Surrounding Area Action Group. They originally put the suggestion forward in July 2013.
