A couple look at 'The Arch', a six-metre high Roman travertine sculpture positioned on the north bank of the Long Water in Kensington Gardens. It was presented by the artist, Henry Moore, to the nation for siting in Kensington Gardens in 1980 - two years after his eightieth-birthday exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, London.

The Arch is made from seven travertine stones weighing a total of 37 tonnes. The stones were sourced from a quarry in northern Italy.
