About this piece

Helston is perhaps most famous for the ‘Furry’ or Floral Dance which is held on 8th May each year. On Flora day thousands of visitors come to watch the local people dance their way through the streets and listen to the Helston Town Band.

A short walk from the centre of Helston is Coronation Park with its huge boating lake. This is a view of the lake with its small island where you can usually find a swan’s nest during the spring. Rowing boats are for hire and on this particularly day there were 2 boats moored alongside the edge of the lake. A swan was wandering around – perhaps looking to be fed! In the distance, a pair of swans glides through the water perfectly synchronised with each other.

This high quality giclee print is mounted and will fit a standard readymade 16″ x 20″ frame
