Village Swordfish Lands in Centre

After several delays and setbacks, the commemorative swordfish sculpture has finally been erected outside the old HSBC building today.

The sculpture is a feature forming part of the village revamp that completed late last year. The issues with the stone that delayed construction have now been rectified, and the sculpture has now taken its place in the village centre despite the wet weather we have experienced throughout the day.

The sculpture depicts a Fairey Swordfish, a World War 2 aircraft which was built at Sherburn and which played a crucial role in the sinking of the Bismarck.
