British farmer builds Big Ben replica in field

Updated on : Tuesday, August 11, 2009

LONDON: Rising above a field of ripening corn, the clock tower of Big Ben has appeared in a sleepy stretch of rural Cheshire.

Closer inspection reveals that this is a rustic copy of the Victorian landmark, built on a farm using more than 500 bales of hay and featuring a working clock.

The sculpture, which has a working clock, was built in celebration of summer and heralds the 150th anniversary of the famous London landmark. Previous straw creations have included a rocket and a windmill.
