All over the county recently, there have been animal trails, usually concentrated around a town or city, such as the Gromits in Bristol, Gorilla’s in Norwich, Superlambanana’s in Liverpool, or the penguins in St Helens. Now a new one has emerged, but instead of being focused on one place, they are spread out across the county of Lancashire…
There are 20 of these striking figures all over the county, and we found these 2. The 1st was in the St George’s Shopping Centre in Preston and appears to be modelled on music, whilst the 2nd was later found in the Fishergate Shopping Centre, also in Preston. The Duck is modelled after Preston North End (PNE) Football Club, based at Deepdale Stadium in the city. (I think the Fishergate Centre bought the Duck during the auction as it wasn’t actually present in the centre when the trail itself was on).
The Ducks all have different designs, from a Superman Duck to a Bolton Wanderers Duck, and the whole collection will be auctioned off in a few months time to raise money for Charities that help Cancer Patients and their families.
The Trail was organised by “AquaDucked” and you can buy collectable ducks from them, and find out more about the various events they will have on over the next few months, by visiting their website here.
Above is a map detailing the locations of all the Ducks, from Martin Mere to Leighton Hall. All these locations are open to the public, so come on down and see how many Ducks you can find before they are auctioned off in October!
