Nottingham Dragon

There is a very cool metal dragon sculpture in Sneinton Hermitage commissioned by the Nottingham City Council nearly a decade ago.  According to the website -
A statue of a dragon by sculptor Robert Stubley is located by the roadside on Sneinton Hermitage. It was commissioned by Nottingham City Council and was unveiled on 21 November 2006. The dragon stands 7 feet tall, has a wingspan of 15 feet and took 3 months to finish. It is made out of stainless steel. During the Christmas period, somebody puts a Santa hat on the dragon. Unfortunately, the hat always disappears a few days later.
I can imagine in a tabletop roleplaying setting where a similar statue might be erected to commemorate the slaying of a local scourge, as a tribute to a troublesome dragon landlord, or as a warning to travels not to mess around.  Read more here!
