I’m a little behind the times with this post. Over lockdown stone snakes appeared on Ladygrove, Great Western Park and Cockcroft Road. I’ve finally got around to visiting them and thought I’d share some of the stones that have caught my eye.
I probably should have visited earlier as some designs have faded in the recent rain but there’s still plenty to see. Except for the stones that are hiding.
I’m not sure if these have been placed together on purpose but I rather like the combination. A police car pursuing a T-Rex which is trying to eat one of Santa’s reindeers (yes, I know T-Rex was a vegetarian).
This collection looks like they were painted by the same person or family. Either that or they’ve just co-ordinated colours well.
I love this design as it works well with the shape of the stone.
Quite a few groups and organisations painted stones. One here from the railway workers.
And one from the Didcot Scouts.
Some are very artistic!
The colours in this trio are great. The red, yellow and blue rock links Olaf and Liverpool football club (whether it means to or not).
There are a huge variety of different designs although animals appear to be the most popular.
Many stones feature the various emergency services too.
Lots of bright colours on these stones. Someone obviously likes Up!
If you’d like to visit the stone snakes you’ll find them around Boundary Park on GWP and beside the mound on Ladygrove.
Have you painted a stone? Indeed, are any of these stones yours? If so, do leave a comment!
