Derby - The Ram Trail (11 - 20)
w/e 04 July 2021
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490
The Ram Trail (https://derbyramtrail.org/) is a "Wild
In Art" event held in Derby city centre during the summer
of 2021 and this is the second part of the Trail which looks
at ten more of the decorated rams.
We started this middle portion of the Trail outside Derby Cathedral
where we found "The Orrery" , ram by artist Stephanie
Siân Coley and sponsored by Timms Solicitors.
We walked down Iron Gate to the Market Place where Pea's "Groovy
Derby Ram" a ram covered in thousands of reflective mirrors
had been sponsored by the Cathedral Quarter's Business Improvement
Continuing along Iron Gate - the cathedral can be seen here in
the background - the next ram was the first of two by Lynne Hollingsworth.
Called "Play" it was sponsored by Cosy.
Returning to the Market Place and outside the Quad at the other
end to the "Groovy" ram, Elaine Lim-Newton's "Nurse
Nightingale" had an appropriate sponsor in the Derby and
Burton Hospitals Charity.
At the rear of the Quad and near the Sir Peter Hilton Memorial
Garden with its small statue called "Boy and Goose"
which can be seen here in the background is number 15 of the
Ram Trail. This one was sponsored by Wathall's and is "Flamsteed's
Ram" by Catherine J Bell.
Across Corporation Street from the Memorial Garden are Derby
City Council's offices and it was the Council that sponsored
Marie Arroyo Lopez's "Pride In Derby" that stands outside.
The Riverside Gardens are behind the Council offices and the
Law Courts and on the path leading to the Gardens between the
Courts and the Bus Station is a ram by artist Adam Worton and
sponsored by Middlebrook Transport. With a football theme it
is called "Come On You Rams!".
Opposite that path leading to the Riverside Gardens and standing
on the wide pavement is Kathleen Smith's Stancliffe Hall sponsored
"Ar'Baaaa'retum". You can also see in this image behind
the ram, not only the Quad but also the cathedral.
Watching the buses come and go from the Morledge is the second
ram by artist Lynne Hollingsworth. Sponsored by Treetops Hospice
this sunflower decorated ram is called "Memories Fade But
The final ram in this selection, number 20, can be found inside
what used to be called the Eagle Centre but now goes by the name
of Derbion. And it was Derbion that sponsored "Poseidon"
by Marta Zubieta.
We later returned to Derby for the final 10 of the 30 rams on
the Trail and they can be seen here.
The first 10 rams can be seen here.
