A few words of explanation about today's upload, once again taken yesterday at Herrington Country Park near Sunderland (the monument in the distance is Penshaw Monument, a very famous landmark in these parts!). As a V2 I thought I'd try and depict what this might look like at night!!:
On the central hill of the park is a stone circle with seven steel sighting boxes strung between the stones, one for each line of sight. Take a look through the square openings, or for smaller children, through the holes in the metal work to see each focus point. The name of each point is etched into a steel plate, on the boulders next to each sighting box, along with the distance you are away from it
(Taken from a PDF issued by Sunderland City Council)
Also, for those interested in yesterday's seat:
This seat (Sun), part of a group of seats based on the elements, were commissioned by Sunderland City Council and constructed by a group of artists named ‘strata’ ............................ other pieces from this group – rain, wind and snow.
Thanks for all your continued support!
