As far as I know, the monk in the Vines IS still there. It's lying down at the far end near the wall to part of Kings School (St Margarets Street end).  I haven't seen it close to though, so perhaps there's not a lot left now?

There was a carving of a monk in the Vines Rochester for about 20 years but rotted and has since been removed.

Tree Carvings following the 1987 Hurricane

Art from the Hurricane. Photos by Allan J Yates

The Great Storm of 1987 was a violent cyclone that occurred on the night of 1516 October, with hurricane-force winds causing casualties in Kent, as a severe depression in the Bay of Biscay moved northeast. Canterbury was a major casualty of this storm.

Many trees were blown down including these in Millers Field by the Causeway. Note the railings embedded in the tree. The railings were along the river bank opposite North Lane.

The carvings are no longer there - I presume they rotted and were removed - unless someone knows their whereabouts now.
