Straw Bale Big Ben

Posted on: August 14, 2009

Snugbury’s Ice Cream in Cheshire in the UK, has re-imagined the famous London landmark, Big Ben – in straw bale form.  The 70 foot, 20 tonne sculpture, complete with working clock set to GMT,  marks the 150 year anniversary of the real Big Ben, and is just the latest in a yearly series of straw sculptures constructed by the company with the assistance of Mike Harper of Harbook Engineering, to raise money for the Kids Company Charity.
