Away with the fairies. One of our favourite pastimes’ is to find the fairies at Trentham Gardens. And despite exploring the gardens for nearly six years now we never tire of following the trail and spotting each of them, all with different names and positions. My favourite is Wishes which you’ll find towards the end of the trail near to the café looking out over the lake. I love the detailing, the level of intricacy of her hair, the dandelion blowing in the wind and those wings.
They are so lifelike and truly beautiful sculptures. No matter when you visit you’ll often find several families and adults alike following the trail in search of each statue, some hidden so well that you retrace your steps, others dancing in the sunshine for all to see. The fairies are created from galvanised and stainless steel by a local artist Robin Wright and if you ever do visit Trentham you’ll also see the 16foot dandelions which Robin’s daughter created, such a talented family.
