Ginger the Horse (2011), is a steel wire sculpture by Andy Scott, who also created The Kelpies at Falkirk.

The statue celebrates the contribution made to the industrial life of the docks, shipyards and sugar refineries. It also commemorates the tale of the Clydesdale horse called Ginger who was said to have fallen into the river and drowned in 1889 while transporting sugar along the quayside.

Continue by walking through the gap in the hedge and use the pedestrian crossing to cross Rue End Street then turning right walk forward for a few steps then bear left down the path into the gardens to Pin 35: Admiralty Anchor.
