The World

Sculpture in the castle grounds. This is accompanied by poetic quotes and biblical ones, together with scientific statistics. George Burt who commissioned this piece which has something for everyone, believer or not, worked for the construction company of his Uncle John Mowlem, eventually taking it over, Although he moved to London with the business and made his fortune there he remained very much connected to the Swanage area and bought the estate at Durlston head, building the castle and developing the grounds there. As a sculpture I think the 'World', is very impressive and also a fascinating record and stone snapshot of its time. Mowlems is still trading today
