We visited Trentham Gardens in July last year where we met Martin and Elaine Robinson who only live a few miles down the road in the village of Stone. We had a great day out together, the only disappointment being the inclement weather for a July day and the odd shower now and then if I recall. In one area of the garden is this unusual sculpture remembering when the Bankers Clearing House was transferred to Trentham for the duration of WWII. The statue has seven sides - as a fifty pence coin does - it sits on one side and the other six are visible. Each side is divided diagonally and the banks' crests stand out against a bubble-type background surface. The figure inside the coin is in a semi-foetal position with the knees tucked up near the chin.
