The Tinner's Hounds



These caused quite a stir when installed a few years back.  Estimated to cost £30,000 to make, these bronze dog statues were cast out of old miner's boots and the references made by the locals ranged from 'Mildly amusing' to 'grotesque...a waste of tax payers money.'  I think they are rather endearing and I am sure the furor has died down somewhat now.
