A mystery has been solved as the people responsible for very impressive sculptures at Slapton have been identified.

The sculptures were first pointed out to us on Wednesday, 17 August, and many people commented on how impressed they were, but no one was aware of the people responsible for it. 

Well, now we have found them!

Sachin and Ben's sculpture

We were contacted by Geoff 'Grampy' Howlett, who explained it was his grandson, Sachin, and his dad Ben Cordery, during their annual visit to Devon from Brighton. 

"This is the third year of their efforts but by far the most ambitious", Geoff explained. "Our family home is in Weymouth but our daughter Kim and husband Ben and son Sachin live in Brighton. They have holidayed near Slapton for the past three years."

Sachin and Ben 

Geoff continued: "They normally visit us on the way down to Devon as it is such a long drive, at least six hours or more without a stop. They will be staying with us over the bank holiday on the return journey this weekend.

"We wonder if Sachin might turn out to be a future Henry Moore?"

We hope to see more of Sachin and Ben's work in the future.
