KINVER ROTARY CLUB COMMISSIONS TOP UK STONEMASONS FOR TOPOSCOPE REFURBISHMENT


By Ian Maddock - Posted on 14 April 2014

The Rotary Club of Kinver has commissioned one of the country‚Äôs leading stone masons to carry out the refurbishment of the Toposcope on the top of Kinver Edge.  The 4ft diameter piece of slate that displays the information  has been attacked by the weather and is to be replaced with a piece of black granite.

The lettering on the new top which will be an exact replica of the original created in 1990 is being carried out by Perfitt  of Norfolk whose work is to be seen extensively at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas.  The Kinver Edge project is in fact to be executed immediately after the completion of a memorial commemorating the Battle of the River Plate.

An unveiling ceremony of the refurbished Toposcope is planned for Saturday May 17 when Gavin Williamson, Member of Parliament for South Staffordshire will be guest of honour.
