A coach and horses sculpture at a key gateway entrance to Lutterworth has officially been unveiled.

And prominent local councillor Rosita Page said she is delighted that it will offer a beautiful welcome to those visiting the town.

The art installation, which consists of four galloping white horses, stretches 22 metres along an embankment and is visible for some distance away as you approach the town.

The sculpture celebrates Lutterworth’s historical significance as a major stopping point for stage coaches on the route to London.

The sculpture, which is embedded into Regent’s Court Embankment in the High Street, was made by sculptor and stone carver Graeme Mitcheson.

Cllr Page, who is a town, county and district councillor, was one of a group of dignitaries who unveiled the artwork recently and said the memorable piece will help to enhance the town.

The sculpture was commissioned by Lutterworth Town Council and funded via a grant from Leicestershire County Council.
