With the summer sun finally managing to extend a few wispy rays our way, many of us will be starting to think of getting out there to enjoy some of the many green, outdoor spaces that Watford has to offer.

But those of you thinking of going for a run or taking the dog for a walk along the River Colne are in for a little bit more than just fresh air and (hopefully) blue skies – from next month, you will also be able to soak up a little bit of art with your sun.

A new exhibition at Watford Museum reveals the inspiration and creative processes behind a series of five metal sculptures that will be unveiled in June along the Colne River corridor, from Watford Playing Fields to Water Lane.

They have been created by sculptor Luke Perry, in association with Watford Borough Council, and have been inspired by the area and its history and heritage.

A full interview with the sculptor, Luke Perry, will appear in the Watford Observer in June.

  • Colne River Sculpture Trail Exhibition is at Watford Museum, Lower High Street, Watford, until Saturday, May 31. The sculptures themselves will be unveiled on Monday, June 9 at 2pm. Details: 01923 232297, watfordmuseum.org.uk
