With apologies to Andy Goldsworthy

Crisp packets glued to stone walls using the spit of teenagers

These walls just outside Austwick were the subject of one of Any Goldsworthy's largest but least known sculptures. Taking 14,389 crisp packets he carefully arranged and stuck them to these walls using the spit of teenagers, where they stayed for about 18 months before David, the then Parish Clerk, individually removed them.

That, of course, isn't true, and I should point out that I think Andy Goldsworthy, along with Richard Long is probably the best landscape sculptor around. I'll happily remove this if he takes offence. And my apologies to David.
