Hercules minus Mars

Lead statues of Hercules and Mars kept each other's company at Chirk Castle until some time after 1911 when they went missing. Hercules turned up but Mars is still on walkabout.

Hercules was found in a nearby wood in 1983 and brought back to the castle by helicopter. Experts have now renewed the hunt for the 12ft tall Mars.

Historian Nigel Davies said: "When you think of the sheer size of it and the weight, and that it has gone for a walk without anyone noticing. But this is within living memory so someone may know something."
