Installation at The Ropewalk took place on Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th May. The old gates and railings were removed so we could begin digging out the new footings.
Some of the digging was easier said than done. Just a few inches below ground level we found the remnants of an old brick building. Hamish and Dave had to dig out he bricks and create a secure foundation for the railings.
Once the footings were dug the railings and gates went in without a hitch.
The linear nature of the piece makes it difficult to photograph in its entirety.
Luckily the sun came out just as we completed work on day two allowing me to get some lovely photographs of the shadows .
