The Kent Invicta statue
The Kent Invicta statue is a significant and impressive representation of Kent’s ancient symbol: a rearing stallion.
Standing some 100 feet (30 metres) high, fabricated in treated steel plates and sections, using high quality, durable materials, it will be situated on an unused donated site at Farthingloe, between Dover and Folkestone. (Subject to planning consent)
The enduring legacy which the Invicta statue will bring to Kent, as a visitor and cultural centre, reflects the strategic ambitions and established plans at county and district levels for regeneration, culture, tourism and improvement, which, it is believed, will lead to improving materially the quality of life in east Kent.
It is hoped the Invicta statue will bring economic and cultural benefits to Kent, which have been measured and felt in Gateshead after the Angel of the North was completed, not only in terms of sourcing materials, goods and services locally but also as a significant visitor attraction of national and international importance. (go to “case histories section”) Further benefits include: providing a boost to visitor numbers and attractions in the area; generating interest, energy, curiosity and excitement in Kent’s heritage; providing additional traction to regeneration activities.
No public money or funding is involved. The Invicta statue will be provided by sponsorship and donations.
