Chess pieces

Today I had a rare treat - lunch with my wife! I walked down to the Woodlands cafe at lunch-time and decided to capture this view of gigantic Lewis chess-pieces guarding the entrance to the car park. I have already blipped details of the King (to the left) and the Queen (to the right) but I thought that you might like to see them in their setting. There are also statues of the Rook and the Bishop in other locations in the town - plus the Knight replica which is actual-size in my office. The real story behind their discovery is worth reading too.
