It's his standing leg....if that is broken the whole statue could fall.....apparently they are going to make a supporting plinth for that leg now.

Plans for the repairs include the creation of a new plinth and support for the statue's free leg. It's thought the repairs will cost nearly £20,000 and take about 10 weeks to complete. The statue, sculpted by Vivien Mallock, shows a 24-year-old Clough with his boots slung over his shoulder striding towards Ayresome Park, Middlesbrough's former ground, on his way to training.

Would PTR dissapprove of us if me and you went up there and took the leg off and weighed it in?

That statue is protected by the people of Grove Hill, they'll not even let a bird shight on it...it's untouchable...unless your a five year old child swinging off his leg....
