Your move, I think

The ancient game of chess has been enjoying a renaissance perhaps as an antidote to playstations and Twittering. Even garden designers have been getting in on the act. Non more so than sculptor Peter Knight and this giant sized chess game that measures 15 square feet. The pieces are mounted on rollers and are designed in a medieval style. The set was originally designed to celebrate the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002 and is a very popular set both for fun and as a decorative item in a large garden. It is hand made by Chilstone craftsmen and pieces can be individually purchased.
