Placing the memories inside the wall
As the repair works came to an end, we gave visitors and those who have a connection with this special place the opportunity to leave a memento at the monument. We received many letters, photos and poems from the local community and further afield. The memories and letters were placed in the heart of the monument and will remain there long into the future.
New stonework is revealed
As the scaffolding was taken down it revealed a patchwork of new stones. This lighter coloured stone will gradually turn grey just like the surrounding stones. Each new stone has been individually tooled by a team of specialist stonemasons.
