Carving The Local Wildlife

February 27, 2018

We have added a varied collection of wooden animal carvings to our portfolio at Rushden Lakes. Covering birds, mammals, insects, and fish, each animal carving is based upon the local wildlife. We spread the carvings across the Rushden Lakes site for visitors to encounter, alongside their real life counterparts. Below you can see a few of the different creatures that we carved.
