Where are the anchors

The Big Anchor Project is trying to collate images that illustrate how anchors find themselves in all kinds of unusual places and being used in many different kinds of ways.

The project is interested in receiving images of anchors being used as symbols, as company logos, in flowerbeds, on roundabouts and in any other way.

Each month the Big Anchor Project hopes to show a new place that an anchor has been found, but only with your help.

So don’t forget to take your camera with you.
