'Diamonds In The Rough'

About this project

A Public Art commission funded by The Bromford Group. Four one metre by one metre panels celebrating the history and people of Rough Hills Tavern and the wealth of its industrial heritage. The panels form a timeline, through from the days of collieries and coal mining, the area’s original main industry, to industries such as car manufacturing, steelwork and japanning. The network of canals depicted throughout the panels represent the huge importance they had to industrial history and still today
