Cley 15 artists on Cley beach
There are a number of installations on Cley Beach and to make sure that you can find them all, here is a list of what to look for.
Once you have parked (there is a beach car park and the Cley 15 exhibition guide entitles you to an hour's free parking), head down towards the beach eastwards and you will encounter the first piece, Shelter by Charlie Hawkins - a mobile birdhide made from handcut shingles, followed by Trapped by Stephanie Gilbert and Philip Bacon which is a large crabpot that you can get into and get the feeling that a crab might have when caught.
After that is Castellation by Mike Dodd which may look like random stones on the beach but is in fact a reconstruction of a piece of church stonework. The old pill box has been 'recovered' by Mary Crofts with colourful paintwork entitled Folly. This was disturbed by the nesting swallows who were in and out of the pillbox and needed safe passage.
Near to Folly and just over a fence is Unsettlement by Ann Christie and Jan Dedman - small houses nestling around a small pond.
Walk a little further and look amongst the dune grass for Rebecca Hearle's Along the Shore I Drift - a glass box containing prints and pages. In the distance (not too far) you will be able to see three thin threads leading to the sky. Get closer and you will be at Laurence Edwards' Chord 1,2,3 looking like creatures from the marshes on a steel plinth, set against the sea from one point of view and against the marshes on another. Now keep going as you haven't reached the last piece - standing scattered on the beach a little further along are concrete cast heads, also by Laurence Edwards, so camouflaged in the sand you have to look carefully - the last piece on the beach.
