Given the fervent fan base for W&G this was always going to be a big hit but it became bigger than any imagined. People came for far and wide (and many from abroad) to hunt and photograph themselves with the illusive and humorous Gromits. Whilst most we in Bristol they did slip a few a bit further away, including Paddington Station and Bristol International Airport. And we were lucky to have one here in Cheddar by the caves, less than 10 minutes' walk from the cottage. This one painted by Tom Berry was called "aMazing Gromit" and the complex hand drawn leaf pattern is a real maze to be traced:
The tree motif that covers him is also a maze - can you navigate from the starting
point on his right ear through the forest to the safety of the cottage on his tail?"
The best bit is the photo gallery which shows the incredible inventiveness of the various artists.
