The giant heads of US presidents sit crumbling in a field in Virginia

In a small field in the US, the giant effigies of 43 presidents sit crumbling.

The 18 to 20ft (5.5m-6m) busts are all that remain of Virginia's Presidential Park, which were inspired by Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

They cost about $10m (£6.9m) to create.

But it went bust (pardon the pun) in 2010 due to lack of visitors.

Despite being asked to destroy the concrete heads, a local farm owner called Howard Hankins rescued them.

He moved them to his 400 acre farm where they stand today.

The busts weighed up to 9,000kg each so it wasn't an easy task.

Each of the 43 heads weighed between 11,000-20,000 pounds, (4,989-9,071kg), and the process of transporting them cost $50,000 (£34,669), according to the Smithsonian.

In the move, the busts were inevitably damaged - noses broken and heads cracked - leading to their worse for wear appearance today.

Hawkins' field isn't officially open to visitors - he told the Smithsonian that he lacks a tourist attraction licence.

But he is working to raise money to restore the busts and rebuild the museum.

He's started a Facebook page and called it the Williamsburg Presidential Museum Project.

"This project will benefit Williamsburg, the state of Virginia and the people that visit," it reads.

"Plans include a new facility with exhibits featuring an Oval office, Presidential transportation, The White House, First ladies, a secret service and covert ops area and other Presidential documents and memorabilia."
