Headington Shark’s 21st birthday

Shark and scaffolding

The Headington shark, surrounded by scaffolding on the morning of 5 July 2007. It was being cleaned up ready for its 21st birthday on 9 August 2007, but subsequent work needed in the roof area makes it unlikely that the scaffolding will be removed until the spring of 2008.
