Jawbone replacement update

Some of you may read an article in the Evening News today highlighting the delay in the renewal of the Jawbone Arch at the Melville Drive end of Middle Meadow Walk.  You can see the report here.

There is little additional in the article beyond the detailed information I circulated last November (which see here).

The current estimated time for the erection of the repaired Jawbone is late Spring.

See here and here for further information about the remarkable Meadows Great Exhibition of 1886, of which the Jawbone arch is one of four physical commemorations still visible locally.

Thanks are due to the many local people and organisations who have supported the renovation project.
