Lynn Chadwick made his home in Lypiatt Park, on the edge of Stroud town. One of the giants of twentieth century sculpture, Chadwick's unique and singular work spanned 50 years and he created over a thousand pieces. His presence in the Stroud Five valleys has left a legacy of fine craftsmanship and reputation for excellence with the stroud hills becoming home to many established and world famous artists. Sculptors like Ralph Brown, Neville Gabie and Lynn Chadwick's son, Daniel Chadwick, and Damien Hirst continue the tradition of leading contemporary work.
Pangolin Foundry was created in Chalford valley because of Chadwick . It is now one of the country's leading sculpture foundries casting for an International clientelle. Still using traditional methods and skills and priding itself on fine crafsmanship.
Another fine example of the creative industries that flourish in this glorious valleys.
