One of the most remarkable images in Sedgley Manor was painted on tarmac in autumn 2018.

We asked you to name the location, and tell us why this bird was chosen.

The Mute swan overlooks Swanbrook Valley. It was painted in October 2018 on tarmac adjacent to the pavement on the north side of Eve Lane, Woodsetton. The feature was designed by Stephen Field, resident artist for Dudley MBC. It was painted with road marking material by Black Country based John A. Bates (Contractors) Ltd.

The idea came from Don Davies, Managing Director of the Woodsetton Charitable Trust.
