The tale of Sir Gromit of Bristol
Sir Gromit is everything a knight should be – brave, chivalrous, with a thirst for adventure! After roaming the land in search of daring deeds and wrongs to be righted, he returned to the kingdom of Bristol for a very special quest … To defend the steps of St George’s!
Just like real medieval armour, Sir Gromit’s shining suit took a lot of work. Sculptor Ian Marlow modelled it first in cardboard before sending his design to be laser-cut in stainless steel. Each piece was then fitted to Gromit’s body and secured with welding and rivets – sometimes in situ! There’s also more to this gallant knight than meets the eye … Below his armour he is wearing a pair of long johns! Well, it’s important to be comfortable when going on a quest …
