 A Fifty foot Meerkat is keeping a watch over Cheshire.

It's the latest straw sculpture to be built at Snugburys Ice Cream farm on the A51 near Nantwich in Cheshire.

It's the 10th year the farm has built a statue from hay.

Last year they built  Big Ben - which even had a working clock inside!

Is it from "Compare the Meerecat.com"?

Hi there, it's on the A51 outside Nantwich between Reaseheath and Calverley. The nearest business near there is Car Transplants, their address is Chester Road (A51), Hurleston, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6BU. It's not far from the Boughey Distribution Depot on same road. They've had Jodrell Bank and Space rockets before made out of bails of hay!! Check out this link to the creators, http://www.snugburys.co.uk/sculpture.htm Dave. :-)) :-)) :-))
