Peter Lyon’s unnamed wall sculpture, in welded aluminium plate, was mounted above McDonald’s restaurant, facing the bus station, in 1964. It is particularly interesting for the shadows it casts at different times of the day.

An original model of the sculpture is in Stevenage Museum.

  • I think this is no longer there, which is a pity. Sculpture and art enhance our environment
