Branston village art & heritage trail has been created over many years by artsNK working with the local history group, and the village community. The trail shares the story of the village, and the aim is to benefit the area with as much input from the local community as possible either through meaningful consultation or active artistic participation.
Artworks featured include a metal sculpture, Lincoln Longwool Sheep Heading for the Sheepwash, by James Sutton. The 3 metal sheep (2 adults and 1 lamb) were installed in 2016 on Plough Corner in the village, near to the site of the old sheepwash. Nearby is the Wellsprings steel sculpture situated in the Sheepwash car park in the village centre, which is based on ideas put forward through a series of design workshops facilitated by artsNK with members of the village history group in 2007, and the Branston mosaic, for which artsNK and Branston history group worked with artist Alan Potter to create a mosaic time line highlighting details of historical events relating to Branston.
