We've had a busy old summer this year, with great results! Here's an update on just a couple of our projects from the last few months:
White Moss Bridge
This bridge was commissioned by the Lake District National Park Authority to replace the previous wooden footbridge with one that is accessible for cyclists and wheelchair users.
The design is based on the traditional estate railings seen all over the Lake District, with a bit of Chris Brammall style imparted. The uprights have a coil detail at the base with a forged wave at the top.
The bridge utilises the existing pillars and marks these with weathering steel triangles along the footway.
The previous bridge had stone steps to access it, these steps remain and access to the bridge is now via winding ramps.
The bridge itself its in its background beautifully, meaning that none of the impact of the woodland river with Lakeland fells behind is lost.
This impressive sculpture was designed by Melanie Jackson of Melanie Jackson design as the centrepiece for Hornsbridge roundabout in Chesterfield.
The 7 metre tall flower is constructed from eight petals of weathering steel with stamens and detailing in stainless steel. The bases of the petals continue to the edge of the roundabout in dry stone walled lines, with the sections in between to be turfed.
