    Great pic - Thanks. Here in "Barking Town" we have the UK's 2nd largest public artwork called "Holding Pattern" - It's 70m long x 50m wide and almost 6m high. It cost £650,000 to build and only Anthony Gormley's “Angel of the North” is bigger.

    The reason we don't cover up is that the pubs are so busy and hot, there are loads of them so you never need walk very far to the next one. A coat then becomes a hinderance as you end up carrying it. Hope this clears things up a bit lol. x
