Gansey Girl

“The Gansey Girl” depicts a young woman knitting a “Gansey”, a traditional jumper worn by fisherman.
The sculpture which was designed by artist Steve Carvill reflects the fishing history and families of Bridlington, East Yorkshire which is installed on North Pier as part of the Bridlington Maritime Trail.
