Sheffield City Council with European
Regional Development Funding. This work was part of the creation of Castle
Square on the traffic intersection formerly known as 'The Hole in the Road',
a famous 1960's Sheffield landmark.
The griffins were cast from moulds
taken of the stone griffins that once stood around the wall at the base
of the Crimea Monument.
The moulds were taken from the two best surviving griffins and some work
was needed to restore the fine details around their heads.
