Mystery surrounds massive tap in Water Lane

Watford Observer: Picture by @EandAG Picture by @EandAG

The erection of a large tap-like structure on Water Lane, Watford, bamboozled town folk this week.

Sculptures have been placed around the town and surrounding area as part of Watford Museum’s new art trail.

The works are still covered until a big unveiling on Monday, June 9.

The art trail features the new Colne River sculptures and will be officially opened by Watford’s elected mayor Dorothy Thornhill in the Waterfield Recreation Ground near the entrance to Shaftesbury Road at 2pm.

After the floods in this area earlier in the year I am not convinced that Mayor Dorothy Thornhill has really got a grip on the situation.

Art installations of this nature raise the interest of locals and visitors alike. Just look to how many smaller rural communities have turned villages around by welcoming street art and artist galleries etc. Art tends to be positively received and with such initiatives Watford will be a brighter and better place.

Was the installation of this art work easy or did they have to faucet?

Perhaps instead of wasting time and money on this "art" feature they could have repaired the traffic lights at the railway bridge in Water Lane that have been out of action for months!

If I am not mistaken there is one on Radlett Road which is identical or is it another case of reporters showing they know nothing about local geography. Either way there are thousands of jobs around Watford that should take priority. Politicians polishing t**ds again.
