Sir Nigel Gresley statue

In 2015 I was commissioned to sculpt a bronze statue of Sir Nigel Gresley for King’s Cross Station, by the Gresley Society Trust. Sir Nigel, the eminent railway engineer (1876-1941), designed the record-breaking steam locomotives, Flying Scotsman and Mallard. The 7ft 4in bronze will be unveiled on the new Western Concourse, adjacent to his former offices, at 11am on the 5 April 2016. This marks the 75th anniversary of Gresley’s death.

Please see the specific sections of this website on the Gresley maquette and the Gresley statue for further details.

My blog is covering work-in-progress on the maquette and the statue.

Material: Clay for bronze casting
Dimensions: 7ft 5in
