I went around the roundabout and down a road a bit and no elephant spotting. I then went back through the shopping centre - and because I didn't read all the bits of the map properly - tut! I didn't see that the elephant was actually in the shopping centre - St Modwens, to be precise. A kind security guard pointed me in the right direction. I wasn't leaving until I found it - even though I really wanted to get home! Sometimes you have to allow yourself a bit more time to reach your goal.
I felt sorry for this elephant - it is in a very dirty location which is far less salubrious than some of the more fortunate elephants of London. Still, it is very beautiful, despite the shabby environs. Forever Birds - isn't that a grand title? No 6, artist Anchalee Intorn.
