Circle on Huntcliff

The Circle was one of three sculptures I made for locations on the top of the 300ft high Huntcliff just south of Saltburn. Part of a series of Milestone Commissions instigated by Common Ground to celebrate 'local distinctiveness' and project managed by Steve Chettle of ArtsUK it epitomises what can happen when a piece of sculpture becomes part of a place and a unique landmark.

Living locally and working in a specialist British Steel rolling mill where I made the sculpture was an experience I will never forget. Hopefully the thousands of walkers on the Cleveland Way who pass through and by it will also remember this rusting testament to the area it symbolises as it gently clangs in the breeze.

People have been married there, stories written, summer solstice is celebrated there and even a song has been written about it. What more could anyone want? Maybe another project like it!

Gary replied to Ian Parkes's discussion Honda HRH536 HX pro difference between Honda HRD 536 TX
"Both high end machines but the HX machines are hydrostatic drive with ‘commercial grade’ Honda engines and would suggest that’s the main cause of the price difference 
The model coding typically gives the game away "

"Common practice on a lot of sites I used to tend. A 30 or 40 inch trimmer blade is your friend. If litter is part of your job make sure you allow time to litter pick it. You won't have space to properly blow it clean.
