Metallic Cows

Following on from their debut at the first RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, the life size metallic cows arrived at their new permanent home high above the Derwent Valley.

The cows were part of the award-winning Experience Peak District Garden which was designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show award winner, Lee Besthall and were sprayed copper, chrome and gold respectively by local artists Becky Pytches and Rob Hopper.

The Heights of Abraham, popular with visitors for over two centuries, create a unique backdrop for the modern installation amongst the Victorian savage gardens and historic landscapes.

Director Rupert Pugh says “We are delighted that we were able to welcome all three of the quirky cows and keep them within the Peak District. We hope that visitors to the Heights will enjoy the opportunity to see these contemporary, captivating sculptures for many years to come.”

The cows are currently located under the Victoria Tower and are in prime position for photographs.
