Gyosei Art Trail
Commissioned by Great Linford Parish Council with support from The Parks Trust, Public Art Trust MK, Canal & River Trust and MK Council, the Gyosei Art Trail was created for local residents to enjoy. Completed in 2016 the trail consists of eight pieces in total each piece relates to the themes of Japanese connections, canal history, and natural history. Pieces to see on the trail include Arachne Weaves by Linda Johns along the Canal Boardwalk, which takes inspiration from how a spider makes its web, and Ptolemy Elrington’s Dragonfly made from recovered materials.
