Fixing the Link elephant Signage on the HIgh Street: "Town Centre" and "Railway Station"

Book Tickets Online


Fixing the Link is an innovative artwork installation and wayfinding project to enhance the walk from Colchester North station to Colchester town centre.

The 1 mile route from the station to the town centre, which takes approximately 20 minutes, starts with a large elephant sculpture on the southside forcourt and finishes with another elephant sculpture on the High Street.

Designers Dallas Pierce Quintero were inspired  by Colchester's historical and more modern links with elephants. From Roman Emperor Claudius' dramatic arrival into Colchester leading an invasion force that included elephants, to the iconic Victorian water tower at the top of the High Street affectionately known as Jumbo.
