From the ‘pigs and lions’ team
The high profile, interactive sculpture trail will celebrate the Roman heritage of Bath, mark the 10th anniversary of the popular King Bladud’s Pigs sculpture trail and raise funds for four brilliant local charities.
The Roman Baths temple, built in 1AD, was dedicated to Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, whose symbol was an owl. Minerva's owl of wisdom can be seen carved into the Temple pediment displayed at the Roman Baths Museum.

The website format will change shortly to give information about each owl and please check the latest owl news before you head out to visit the flock, should any not have landed yet or if they have to head back to the Nest for preening....
