We are proud to have fabricated a metal archway for the Mendip Wildlife Community Garden in Westcliff on Sea.

The lovely artwork on the metal arch was created by ceramic artist Lydia Hardwick.

She worked with a number of young people from the area and used their ideas to bring the archway to life for the garden.

The arch is decorated with ceramic pieces which have been collaged in stained clay. The resulting pattern draws on surface design from the 1950s – the time when the Mendip Estate was built.

The archway was commissioned as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded, Young Roots Project.

This community project runs events and activities including arts, crafts, cookery, gardening, and nature conservation so that adults and young people can discover the history of Mendip Wildlife Community Garden.

The project was delivered by the Metal organisation and led by the alternative education group, Epic Quest Centre.
