Cricked neck day in Milton Keynes

As promised, here are the photos of a sculpture we came across while walking from Campbell Park last Thursday.

Many of the columns are inscribed in celebration of a particular day.

This one reads:

The first passenger train from London to Birmingham stopped at Wolverton. The whole 112 1/2 mile journey took 5 1/2 hours. The Wolverton Locomotive Workshops were established the same year.

And here's one commemorating Britain's first teabag, made by a Tetley factory in Bletchley on 5th July 1953.

You will have noticed that, to save you getting a cricked neck, I've put the above pictures on their side.

This is the whole thing, with the Light Pyramid behind.

And some nice clouds.
