The Heavy Horse - Baillieston, Glasgow
Taken from over the waste ground just south of the M8, accessible
from Springhill Parkway.
This statue of a Clydesdale horse sits right next to the M8 motorway on the eastern
approach to Glasgow, at Junction 9 near Baillieston and Easterhouse.
You can see the slip roads to and from junction 9 of the M8, just to the east.
From up here you can see over the motorway to the edge of Easterhouse.
Ground level photos give some idea of the size and realism of the beast.
It's about 15 feet (4.6 metres) tall and is made from galvanised steel rods of
various thickness, welded together.
It's a hollow shell so light, wind and rain pass right through it.
The cheeky glint in its eye.
