'Daventry Calling the World' Sculpture

Made in steel by Circling the Square this sculpture stands on a roundabout at the entrance to Daventry at seven metres high and consists of five masts with a laser-cut radio waves text ring. The sculpture was born out of the town's historic connection to radio and radar. Cllr Alan Hills, community, culture and leisure portfolio holder at DDC said: "It's wonderful to see the sculpture in place. It has really brightened up a major gateway to the town. What?s more, it highlights an important part of our history. Daventry was once famous the world over thanks to the BBC World Service broadcasts and this sculpture serves as a permanent reminder of Daventry's rich broadcasting heritage."
