Designed by Broadbent Studio this masonry feature stands at the heart of Ormskirk town centre and at the entrance to the town’s popular urban green space, Coronation Park.
The design consisted of a large curved wall, flanked by tall carved posts 4m in height. Further posts stand independently, leading to a second wall with semi-circular base, carved lettering and
commemorative bronze work. Tying the tallest posts together is a curved and intricately designed ironwork feature.
A high-specification hidden LED lighting system was brought in from the USA by Recclesia and was incorporated into the radius coping, providing a stunning effect after dark.
The stone is from the Woodkirk Stone Quarry in Leeds. The stonework was produced and fixed using traditional techniques and all of the detailing was hand carved.The masonry sections were of considerable size but the detailing was quite delicate. The project has been very well received by the people of Ormskirk and will take pride of place in the town centre for generations to come.
OneOffs Limited are very proud to have been a part of this.
