Display celebrates the tied history of Woolacombe and Mortehoe

When Ray Parkin of Parkin Estates (owner of Woolacombe beach) decided to celebrate the tied history of Woolacombe and Mortehoe, Dymond Engineering was commissioned to design and manufacture the stainless steel metalwork.

Mike Garner and Sue Roberts, Directors of Dymond Engineering, attended the opening ceremony which was followed by a lovely lunch at Woolacombe’s 4 star Watersmeet Hotel on Saturday 9th June.

The display beautifully depicts the history of the two villages in words and stunning drawings which were all hand drawn onto pieces of slate to convey the historical ups and downs of Woolacombe and Mortehoe. You can find it at the far end of the main car park by the steps onto Woolacombe beach.  It’s well worth a visit if you are in the area.

It was a wonderful project to be involved with and we are delighted and proud to see the fantastic results in situ against the stunning backdrop of Woolacombe beach and the sea.

Working on the project with Alan Black of Parkin Estates we overcame a number of interesting challenges, not least of which was the uneven floor!  The stainless steel metalwork consists of frames to mount more than 20 sizable pieces of slate, plus balustrades, posts and legs to support the whole display structure.

The results look great – why not check it out when you are next in Woolacombe and let us know what you think!
