Work on the “Feature” progresses.

To accompany the walk, a feature is being made at the Flourmill works in Bream. The feature will be a short section of tramroad set on original stone blocks from the Oakwood tramroad.
An original “chair” from the Oakwood tramroad was used to make a pattern. The pattern was then used to make a mould using sand into which molten iron was poured to form the six new cast-iron chairs shown in the photo above.

The chairs were cast in a Foundry in Birmingham.
