The Trumpeter is one of seven sculptures sited along Lord Sheldon Way depicting local leisure pastimes.
Actually, the Trumpeter is probably a Cornetist, since Ashton has close associations with the world of Brass Band music, and brass bands use cornets, rather than trumpets, for their treble instruments.
I notice that this is the 500th post since I started this photo blog! Let's hope the Trumpeter isn't performing The Last Post!
