The sheep were transported over Tower Bridge on their way to Harlow
Harlow is to welcome some unusual visitors this summer with the arrival of 29 life-size fibreglass sheep.
The model animals were decorated in London and Harlow, with the flock being shepherded across Tower Bridge on the way to their new home.
The Summertime Sheep Trail will coincide with the opening of a new gallery as well as an exhibition of sculptor Henry Moore's sheep etchings.
The trail will begin on Saturday 31 July and continue until 30 October.
Harlow, which has styled itself as a
has a history of famous artists such as Moore and boasts a well-known collection of 20th century works.
The town will also see the opening of the new Gatehouse Studios and Gallery later this summer under the direction of London-based arts organisation
An estimated 7,000 cardboard lambs will also be decorated by children, which can be left around the trail.
Andrew Bramidge, chairman of the
Harlow Town Centre Partnership,
said the fibreglass creatures will bring that little bit extra to the town's arts scene.
"The sheep trail will add colour and fun to the collection until the end of October," he said.
"It will also give Harlow children and families a great opportunity to join in with their own lambs."
