Cargoes Art Trail

John Masefield's famous poem 'Cargoes' serves as inspiration for the short art trail around Mermaids Quay in Cardiff, Wales. Twenty-One scupltures are located around Bute street and Stuart street, perched high above the businesses, restaurants and shops.

Metal-work artist Brian Fell created the sculptures on the trail, inspired by Masefield's poem. Cardiff was once one of the largest ports in the World and the works feature the cargoes depicted in the poem which would have passed through the port ranging from exotic animals and birds to precious gems and minerals.
