Bear 7: The Boating Bears

What 3 Words Map Code: sting.peanut.laser


These are the original bears carved in Chislehurst by master craftsman, Will Lee. 

They were created in July 2013 from an oak tree that had been felled because of the danger it posed having been struck by lightning.

They were commissioned by Friends of Chislehurst Recreation Grounds and partly sponsored by JDM Estate Agents.

Continue down the path keeping to the left path until you emerge into Chislehurst Recreation Ground.

Head either round the path or across the grass to the playground on your right. In the corner you will find a few carvings created by Will Lee for Friends of Chislehurst Recreation Grounds in February 2016.
