Shaun in the City! - Bristol
This spring and summer, Aardman’s internationally-renowned character Shaun the Sheep is starring in two ewe-nique charity arts trails across London and Bristol, organised by Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation – introducing, Shaun in the City! 120 giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers and celebrities, are grazing green spaces and iconic locations across London and Bristol, before going to auction to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity and The Grand Appeal, supporting children in hospitals across the UK.
Bristol is home to 70 of the sculptures - 62 divided into eight routes across the city and eight dotted a bit further afield.
This walk took in two and a bit trails (Farm Yard, Downs and Brunel) finding 13 sculptures - starting at St. Werburghs City Farm and finishing at the Avon Gorge Hotel.
Distance: around 9 miles.
This walk took in the remaining trails (Brunel, Heritage, Harbourside, Southbank, Old City and Temple) finding 49 sculptures - starting and finishing at Temple Meads.
The remaining eight Bristol sculptures will be found when all 120 come together, for 'The Great Sheep Round Up!', in London at the end of September.
Distance: around 15 miles.
