What’s That Coming Over the Hill?

29 Dec

It’s a Dalek!


To be more precise it is, in fact, the DaLICK. It’s this year’s straw sculpture made by Snugburys Ice Cream and towers over the A51 Nantwich to Chester road. I’ve driven past it a few times but yesterday it seemed to loom out of the rapidly fading sunset and I just had to stop to take a picture even though it involved wading through a rather muddy field to get the best picture (my suede boots will never be the same again).

It really is very impressive. Not only is it a work of art in its own right but, as I discovered, it will suddenly light up and move its weapon towards you while chillingly advising you of your immanent extermination. The ice cream’s not half bad either.
