"Ebb and Flow" consists of a granite bowl with a diameter of 2.4 m and height of 1.1 m. It weighs 7 tonnes and stands in the middle of a spiral-shaped granite path next to the historic "Newbury Lock", with which it is connected by an underground pipe. Because of this connection the water level rises and falls in the bowl and in the lock at the same time. The sculpture "Ebb and Flow" is at the southern end of Northbrook Street near the canal bridge.
