The Dragon is based on a local legend of the Nine Maidens. The dragon guards the east end of the High Street.

It was Alistair’s family who requested that Tony Morrow, an ex-student of Alistair’s, take over the artwork. Tony took Alistair’s concept and furthered the design into this exciting sculpture.
