Coastal Sculpture Collection

To support the route experience and create marker points throughout the Yorkshire Coast, we are committed to working with local sculptor Emma Stothard to create a bespoke marine and wildlife Coastal Sculpture Collection.

Emma is renowned for creating eye-catching and iconic sculptures, and there will be a new piece commissioned for each of our coastal towns and waymarkers, which will reflect their individual wild and marine life.

The first piece was unveiled at Spurn Point on 26 August 2021, and you can find out more about Emma’s journey with us to create this stunning Green Hairstreak Butterfly by watching the videos below.

We will keep updating you with Emma’s journey creating this collection and share coverage as it is received. This project brings the benefit of attracting more visitors to the Yorkshire Coast to see these iconic pieces and encouraging them, when they are here, to explore more of our amazing coastline.
