Wallace and Gromit Statue

Everyone's favorite clay duo immortalized in bronze.  


Passersby in Preston Market are invited to sit with these two claymation legends. 

Sporting the iconic “techno trousers” featured in the duo’s second film, The Wrong Trousers, a bronze likeness of Wallace balances clumsily behind long-suffering Gromit who is reading a newspaper featuring references to the characters and actors of the Oscar-winning films. The paper also features local humor relating to Preston, the hometown of their creator Nick Park.

Designed by Park himself in collaboration with Aardman Animation and local sculptor Peter Hodgkinson, the turophile twosome are in prime position for a picture and your very own Grand Day Out.
