Scallop

Sculpture by Maggi Hambling
Aldeburgh, Suffolk

This sculpture, in stainless steel, sits at the north end of Aldeburgh beach and is a tribute to Benjamin Britten.

The words around the edge of the upright read “I hear those voices that will not be drowned” and are taken from the libretto by Montagu Slater to Britten’s opera Peter Grimes.
