The iconic rocking horse has been taken down.

Fans of the Lancaster ‘rocking horse’ are pining for its return.

Residents have been wondering when the famous ornamental animal of New Street will return to its home on the wall of the former Rocking Horse toy shop.

It was removed from the building, most recently occupied by The Enchanted Kids Company, in September, believed to be for repair and restoration.

But as yet, the Guardian has been unable to track down the building owners to ask them when the rocking horse will be back.

Lancaster City Council are also unaware of the horse’s whereabouts.

Can anyone help?
