Paolozzi sculptures arrive at Hillside Crescent.

Hillside Crescent welcomes the The Manuscript of Monte Cassino sculptures. Specially made for the spot outside St Mary’s Cathedral the scultpures have been moved to Hilllside Crescent whilst renovations take place.

The various pieces of the Monte Cassino sculpture were designed so that people could walk among them, children could clamber on them and pools of water gather there. The poem from which the inscriptions are taken was written by an Italian monk from the abbey of Monte Cassino.

They are a fantastic addition to the gardens at Hillside Crescent and all clambering is encouraged!
