S.106 Fishermans Beach Art Project

Hythe Town Council recently invited proposals for a major public work of art to be installed in the Princess Diana Sensory Garden, Oaklands Park, Stade Street, Hythe, Kent.

Brief: The funding for a public work of art was provided to HTC by the developer at Fishermans Beach, in Hythe.

A public consultation was held and Teach Me Courses were chosen to complete the project.

This was discussed and it was proposed that the Artwork be moved across the park to the Bandstand, leaving the Sensory Garden as a place to sit peacefully and reflect.

Planning permission has now been granted by Folkestone and Hythe District Council and works can start. The project is expected to hold workshops for the community over the summer with the final unveiling May/June 2024.

Updates to this project will be made once received.

About Hythe

Hythe, the Head Cinque Port, is set on the beautiful Kent coast where the quiet charm of many of the Cinque Port towns belies their important and sometimes violent role in the development of the nation’s seafaring and naval traditions.

Some survive as working ports. Indeed, Dover is a major international transport hub, others, like Hastings, maintain their historic role as centres of inshore fishing. New Romney, Winchelsea and Tenterden, in particular, have been stranded well inland by the retreating sea.

It is sometimes hard to believe that all were once amongst the most significant ports in England but by the 21st century, most of the Cinque Port towns have diversified well beyond their seafaring origins, but all repay the visitor with fascinating glimpses of their colourful past and its continuing influence upon the local, regional and national identity.
