The Gansey Girl Sculpture, Bridlington Harbour
The bronze Gansey Girl sculpture designed by artist Steve Carvill was unveiled on the North Pier in Bridlington on 30 October 2015 as part of the Bridlington Maritime Trail tenth anniversary. The sculpture reflects the fishing history in Bridlington as well as the families in the town. She depicts a young woman sitting on a plinth knitting a gansey, a traditional jumper that contains a rich pattern of symbolism passed down through generations of fishing families.
