Each of the four keys has the handle fixed to the ground and the key at a 90 degree angle to the road. The bases are all different, having a cross, circle, 3-way or clubs shape. The locking blades are also different.
These sculptures celebrate the lock and key manufacturing heritage of Willenhall. The styles of the tops and bases of the keys are all made locally.
Each base has the word WILLENHALL cut out on one side, with letters measuring 5cm high.
