This is not a boar-ing photo

A two headed wooden boar sculpture on the Sandstone Trail.

Wild boar roamed the Delamere Forest in Cheshire. At least they did until the 17th century when the last were hunted into local oblivion.

But walkers of the Sandstone Trail, the 35 mile walking trail that passes through this historic forest, get the chance to see a boar. Although only a wooden one. And one with two heads for, well, look, your guess is as good as mine on this one.

Emblazoned with the Sandstone Trail logo and the names ‘Whitchurch’ and ‘Frodsham’ (the two trail heads), the whole thing is a curious mystery. Especially unknown is how a two headed creature of such a design could ever decide which way to walk.

Well, perhaps some questions are best left unasked.
