Rich Bindon on the story behind this sculpture:
“My late father owned an engineering business for 40+ years, due to the recession in the early 1980’s he had some free time on his hands so decided to make himself a 70ft narrow boat. It was called ‘The Iron Maiden’, in reference to Maggie Thatcher. My Dad had been an electrician in the merchant navy in his younger years, I believe he still had ambitions to captain his own boat!
After 4 years ‘The Iron Maiden’ was completed. it was moored on the canal at Thrupp, Oxfordshire.
We had many family holidays and weekends away cruising the canals and the Thames during the summer. In the evenings after tea I would sit on the roof of the boat fishing for perch and It was not uncommon to see kingfishers patrolling the canal banks, occasionally they would be brave enough to share my fishing spot which was amazing. I will always remember these times fondly, hence my love of the kingfisher.”
