Just less than 100 meter away from Church of Good Sherperd. Might as well take a look and snap a few photo here.

This statue is further up the road from the car park. Most people might missed it if they park at the car park. Interesting history and monument.

The church and this statue are incredibly popular! Busloads of people! My husband went here 20 years ago and there was no one then. Definitely worth a stop but be prepared for the crowds.
