An ice cream farm in Cheshire, renowned for its impressive agricultural sculptures, has unveiled its latest creation which tributes the success of British cycling this year. 

The larger-than-life sculpture was unveiled this week at the side of the A51 in Hurleston, Nantwich. 

At its highest point it measures 35ft and weighs a hefty 7 tons. 

Creator Mike Harper and the Harbrook Engineering team say they have been working on the sculpture since March and preparation included a trip to Manchester’s Velodrome where they met Chris Moulson who the feature is based on.

“To say we are ecstatic with this year’s straw feature is an understatement,” said a spokesperson from the farm. 

“Thanks to Mike Harper and the Harbrook Engineering team’s incredible talent along with the Snugburys straw stuffing teams efforts – we think this could be one to top them all!”

The unveiling of the sculpture coincided perfectly with end of The Tour de France, in which British cyclist, Bradley Wiggins took first place.

“We are over the moon for Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky and have our fingers crossed for this year’s Olympic Team, many of whom are local to us here at Snugburys, ” the farm added.
