A home in Frankie Howerd’s former village is causing a titter with these hedges – shaped like giant PENISES.
The large phallus-shaped plants have been created using topiary skills in Cross, near Axbridge in Somerset.
They were spotted in a front garden by walker Nigel Vile – looming over the Mendip Hills south of Bristol and Bath in Somerset.
He shared them on Facebook where they caused a bit of a sensation. His picture was captioned: “Some fallacious topiary?”
Jacqueline Burrows replied: ”Surely phallic? That’s the problem when you venture into the Mendips. Never know what you’ll find.”
The 69-year-old said: “I’ve lived at the house for 20 years with my wife and its always been known as the ‘willy house’ by children who go to a school nearby.”
“It doesn’t bother me in the slightest.”
“I’ve also had people walk past my house and ask me how I keep my hedges so well-maintained. I wind them up and tell them I put Viagra in the roots.”
In 2010 a Cambridge man was forced to reshape his garden hedge after a member of the public complained that it was offensive and was handed an £80 on the spot fine.
