My entry was for PPAC#46 although I’ve just realised the pics may not meet the criterion as you have to pay to get into Wallington, it’s a National Trust property.

I cannot tell you anything about this except that I saw it in Nice in 2018
For PPAC this week I have a giant Darth Vader made from Lego and a scarecrow.

My entry for PPAC #41
According to the National Trust website the dragons at Wallington were once part of a group of sculptures that stood on top of one of the gates that guarded the City of London, Bishopsgate. Too narrow for London’s growing traffic, the gate was demolished only thirty years after its erection in the 1730s.
Sir Walter Calverley Blackett, the owner of the Wallington estate, bought the dragons as architectural salvage, along with other bits of sculpture and shipped them as ballast on a coal barge up the coast to Newcastle.
They were placed in their present locations in 1928. They are Grade II* Listed Buildings protected by law.
