Robert Hunt and Maya Stone carving

Memorial to women’s cricket legend

Women’s cricketing legend Rachael Heyhoe Flint, who died in 2017, was recently honoured at Lord’s Cricket Ground with a bas relief bronze by Robert Hunt (pictured), cast here at Talos.
The inscription was carved by Maya Martin, one of the resident artists at Project Workshops, where we are based.
Baroness Heyhoe Flint, OBE, DL was best known for being captain of England from 1966 to 1978, and was unbeaten in six Test series. Heyhoe Flint was captain when her team won the inaugural 1973 Women’s Cricket World Cup, hosted by England.
She was the first female cricketer to hit a six in a Test match, and also played as goalkeeper for the England national field hockey team in 1964.
The sculpture can be found at Lord’s east gate.
