For this new work in the grounds of Tudor house Ordsall Hall in Salford John Kennedy took his inspiration from the moat that would have once encircled the hall. The original moat would have provided protection for the hall.

Beautifully set in the landscaped gardens of the hall, the moat is complete with wooden swans suggesting the water that once would have flowed through it
