Ross on Wye - The Man of Ross PH with fish sculpture
The pub seen in the background is The Man of Ross. This name refers to John Kyrle (22 May 1637 7 November 1724) a local philanthropist who (to quote the wording on the gable of the pub) "gained fame for his community involvement, his modest lifestyle and charitable works. He helped settle disputes, aided the poor and sick, supported schools and left the beautiful Prospect Walk with fountain and garden to the citizens of Ross"
The sculpture in front of the pub is called 'Leaping Salmon' and dates from 1997 by the sculptor Walenty Pytel ( LinkExternal link )
