The Secret Art Project - Hidden Artwork No. 4

CLUE NUMBER SEVEN
To find the fourth hidden piece of artwork you will need to walk towards the Canal locks which overlook Telfords Warehouse - the building where my exhibition will be held from the 25th September. If you need directions, you can find a map by clicking this link: Nightowl Map

If you are walking from Abbey Square, turn right immediately after walking under the sandstone archway and follow the path till you pass this cheese shop...



Carry on walking down Northgate Street until you reach the bridge within the Roman walls which crosses the road, just before you cross the canal. It will look like this...



This is Water Tower Street and you need to turn left here....



This is what you'll see above the Water Tower Street sign...



Walk down Water Tower Street alongside the Roman walls. You will pass a house on the left called 'The Levellers House' which has this pretty door...



Continue down the road until you meet the first entrance through the Roman walls...



There is a sign next to it saying 'Canal Towpath' and you need to follow the arrow on this sign and walk under the arch...



...and down the cobbled path...



If you turn around now you will see this...



Continue down the path and round to the left and walk down this slope...



Continue down the path till you find a grass hill which looks a bit like a small outdoor theatre. It overlooks the canal…



Continue walking along the path and you should walk under a large concrete bridge. Immediately after you should see this stone sign on your left...





Pass this and continue walking down the path following the canal. You will start to see lots of canal locks on your right like this...



They’re all numbered and counting downwards. You need to keep walking down this path till you reach canal lock number 1...



When you reach this bridge...



...look to your left and you will see a small patch of grass with a giant wooden knife, fork and spoon on it which looks like this...



Look to the right of these and you will also see a wooden sculpture of a stack of cups and saucers...





Walk towards this...





CLUE NUMBER EIGHT
The secret piece of artwork number four is hidden under the handle of the second cup up on the sculpture...



...so you will need to climb up the saucers a bit to receive the last piece of artwork....



Once you've found the artwork, turn to face away from the Roman walls and look towards the railway bridge...



You will be able to see a red brick building in the near distance....



This is Telford's Warehouse where my next solo exhibition will be held from Saturday 25th September 2010 - Saturday 15th January 2011.



The title of my exhibition is "The Mechanics of the Mind" and I hope you can come and visit and see a large collection of my artwork.
