The statue is an exact replica of the original which was stolen
A statue of Peter Pan is back on display in Swindon's Town Gardens, six years after it was stolen and vandalised.
The statue is an exact replica of the original which was recovered, but too damaged to return to the park.
The two-foot statue sits upon a stone 'cairn' by the entrance to the Victorian park's rose garden.
Swindon Council parks officer Richard Beale said: "We don't want to lose any of our heritage in Swindon.
"We found a foundry in Stroud with an artist and they have restored the original to perfect condition as well as make a new fibre glass mould."
The original statue is believed to have been placed in the park during World War I.
"We don't have a lot of statues in the park itself, added Richard.
"We have a bandstand and the town gardens bowl, but not many statues. So when it went it left a large hole.
"It forms part of a vista so people can look down from the rose garden through to Peter Pan, and in a way it looks like Peter Pan is looking up into the sky thinking 'what a lovely place'."
