Ty Sculpture Trail opened last year in Towerhouse Woods, between Nailsea and Wraxall, in memory of local resident Ty Partridge. Ty died suddenly at the age of 21 of leukaemia but as a child he loved exploring the paths, climbing trees and building dens in the woods. He would always ask for a treasure trail through the woods for his birthday party so the idea of creating a trail in his memory was born. All the woodland animal sculptures are dotted along the paths so you have to seek them out and become a ‘noticer’ of nature. The sculptures have all been carved by Piers Partridge and Phil Carter, the father of Ty’s best friend Sam. Life followed the route from Jacklands Fishing Lake. Follow the sign and cross the crystal-clear stream from the car park.
