The Iron Duke has his hat on

IMG_1184After years of planning, fund-raising and conservation work the historic Iron Duke calender machine has finally been reassembled by Dorothea Restorations of Bristol. It now sits on its concrete plinth next to Kingston House, in Kingston Road.

It sat out in the rain for a few days, but now has its stylish roof of COR-TEN weathering steel that is held up by temporary steel supports. The surround has been measured up and the 15mm-thick glass that will do the actual supporting will be manufactured and installed soon.
