From a pit to a piece of art

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IVERY much en­joyed Julie Hard­ing’s ar­ti­cle ‘No longer a blot on the land­scape’ (June 28) and had to let you know about a fas­ci­nat­ing sculp­ture near my birth­place in South Wales. Caer­philly County Bor­ough is the proud home of Sul­tan the Pit Pony (above), a 650ft-long sculp­ture de­signed by Mick Petts. Sul­tan pays homage to the pit ponies of the South Wales Coal­field and re­sides above the site of the Pe­nallta Col­liery—mem­bers of my fam­ily and ex­tended fam­ily were once em­ployed at a pit across the val­ley. Martin Pud­difer, Not­ting­hamshire
