The Saltaire Octopus, 17/05/14.

It turns out that this rather charming octopus marks the start of “The Aire Sculpture Trail” and that it is one of fifteen sculptures that link Saltaire to Shipley. Seeing it in isolation, it looked like the octopus had clambered out of the Leeds – Liverpool canal to enjoy the sunshine. If you’re walking from Salts Mill to Roberts Park you will probably spot it. Note how it has one eye fixed on the canal at all times.
