Sculpture in Grantham park fenced off due to erosion damage




A sculpture, based at the entrance of a Grantham park, has been fenced off for safety reasons.

The five-metre tall clothes peg sculpture in Queen Elizabeth Park has been cordoned off.

Installed in September 2019, the public cannot get close to the eye-catching attraction, as erosion to the sculpture has left a small spike exposed.

Upon discovering the potential health hazard, remedial action has been taken.

Elizabeth Bowskill, secretary of Friends Of Queen Elizabeth Park, said: "Remedial action has been taken by putting up a barrier to prevent access to the Peg.

"What has happened is that children and dogs clambering on the earth, combined with the dry weather and the turf not having bound to the soil underneath has left the structure vulnerable to erosion.

"Plans are being made to improve the structure and it is hoped that the repair work can take place fairly soon so that it can be reopened.

"Updates are posted on the Friends of Queen Elizabeth Park Facebook page."
