A unique concrete zoological menagerie. A collection of over 200 handmade animals and figures created by artist John Fairnington for his disabled son Edwin. The bespoke collection began in 1935 and continued until the garden became an attraction for visitors.
The collection is based in Northumberland.
Viewing would be essential as many of the larger statues would need extracting from their positions or removing from plinths. This will be the responsibility of the buyer.
The collection would need to be moved by Easter 2022
