New Home for White Buck

Originally installed at a factory in Hythe, near Southampton, this 7ft x 11ft bas-relief in Carrara marble has been re-sited in the New Forest, at Godshill.

It was commissioned in 1958 and relates to the story of 'Red Rufus', William II, who was killed by an arrow in 1100 by Walter Tyrell.
