1988 by Abigail Downer. Three moulded concrete sculptures in Hylton Dene. 'Sleeping Dragon' is curled up asleep on a hillside in the central western part of the Dene. Four 'Footprints' lie to the east near the lake. East again in an area now fenced off are the remains of the 'Dragon's Nest' but the concrete eggs are now smashed. There was a competition for the artist in The Guardian in 1988.
