BIG 'ED: A series of giants' heads, designed and created by Cambridgeshire children, were unveiled last week at sites across the county.
The sculptures are located at each of Cambridgeshire County Council's outdoor education centres - Grafham Water Centre, Burwell House and Stibbington Centre.
Children were asked for artwork on the theme of outdoor learning opportunities and their ideas were then turned into sculptures made of bricks and concrete by artist David Swinton.
Youngsters from Bury Primary School helped create the giants' head at Burwell House. It is named Ed after the builder of Burwell House, Edward Ball.

At the Grafham Water centre, staff worked with Mr Swinton to create a piece of work that reflects the experiences gained by youngsters who use Grafham Water.
The sculpture, called Awakening,, is said to show a sleeping giant that is waking up to the possibilities at the centre.
