New 'Summit Sign' laid out ...
I am told that they are heavy! Those are big bits of steel and the assembled sign will be twenty feet long - I certainly wouldn't want to have to carry them up to the top of a tall building!
Amazing the interest the new summit sign is already creating - I guess it is going to be as 'iconic' in its little way as the 'Angel of the North' if on a rather smaller scale and will soon be welcoming travellers on the A66 again as they cross into Westmorland. I am not yet if these plates will be stored at Kirkby Stephen East before they are taken for construction and erection at the summit by the A66 - watch 'Stainmore Diary' for further details. And please don't forget that we still need contributions to Sue Jones to cover the construction costs.
