Pigs Gone Wild - Part 3

Final day of our pig hunting in Ipswich in aid of St. Elizabeth's hospice, and we started at the railway station today. Surrounded by roadworks we found - Hamlet (37).

Swiftly on to Endeavour House to find A Pig's Year of It (5).

Not too far away was Portman Road and Ipswich Town Football Club - Planet Blue for the Porkman Road (28) pig.

Opposite The AXA building in Civic Drive was Frankensiwne (39)

Then onto the Curve Bar to find Elvis Porksley (27)

Willis was the location for Pig-Geswyk (24)
displaying old and new Ipswich

Idelo Travel had a junior pig in their window
Felix The Federation Pig (63)

Cromwell Square was the next stop and here we found Pretty Penny (3)

Pretty Penny was close to the Cardinal Wolsey statue and Piggy Stardust (2)

Hide and Seek (33) was at St. Vincent Hosue in Cutler Street.

A real treat was finding Jenny Wren's Yarns (a lovely wool shop) to which I can see I will be returning!! In the window of this delightful shop was a junior pig called Nature's Gone Wild (69).

Opposite this shop was another lovely place to shop for gifts called Love One - and another junior pig in the window - Maggie (65).

Back to big Pigs again, and at St, Peter's Church Waterfront we found Piggy The Sailor (16).

The Tourist Information Centre had two junior pigs

Barry the Pig (61) and ...

Albert Einswine (62)

Onto St. Giles Circus and sadly the pig that should be here had been vandalised and taken to be repaired ...

The Trotters Pig (1)

Nearby was Major Henry Wigglesworth (36) standing outside the Chelsea Building Society. 

Inside the Town Hall stand three more junior pigs.

When Pig's Fly (40), ...

... Poppy Pig (41) & ...

... Phelix (42).

The Swinions Pig (31) is found in Cornhill

Just inside Sailmakers Shopping Centre we found the pig we missed last time - 
Pigs Can Fly (8)

At Tower Ramparts, outside Pennikkity Pots is Patches The RHS Pig (68) in his own little shelter.

Nearly there!!

Refuge (34) was at Credit Union 

Our feet were pretty tired by now, but we hiked up to Barrack Corner for
South Street Kids Radio (35) Pig

A little further still and we found Coes and two junior pigs in their window.
BIP (Believe In Pig) (43) and Pigcasso (44)

Time to track back now and we found Salt (22) outside Ipswich Museum

Last but not least The Great Piggish Bake Off (25) was outside Monsoon back in the shopping area. A good point to stop for a well deserved cup of tea before walking back to the car which was back at the station where we started!

Look at those legs!

For more information on all the pigs, artists, locations, sponsors and the trail itself please see the website.
You can download a map or pick one up at various shops and public buildings on the trail.

Have fun!
Thanks for looking
