Couples sculpture

Sean Henry's first offshore sculpture

In August 2007 Sean Henry’s Couple sculpture; a 12.5 metre high artwork (twice the height of a double-decker bus) was sited on a new 200m long breakwater, as part of a £10m coastal protection scheme – making it the UK's first permanent offshore sculpture.

The breakwater scheme is believed to be the first of its kind to be initiated along the Northeast coastline - strengthening the Bay's coastal defences and re-creating the beach, which in its heyday attracted thousands of visitors and day-trippers from across the country and beyond.
