Round­about ‘coffins’ re­moved

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Artist’s Vision -

One of the venues sug­gested by Mr Lester to house a land­mark sculp­ture is the busy round­about out­side the Ash­ford De­signer Out­let.

For years the round­about in Rom­ney Marsh Road has been home to 12 sculp­tures, of­ten re­ferred to by res­i­dents as ‘coffins’ be­cause of their sim­i­lar­ity to burial pieces.

But the McArthurGlen cen­tre is cur­rently in the process of tak­ing over the re­spon­si­bil­ity for the round­about from Kent County Coun­cil and plans to trans­form its look.

Work­men have re­moved the ‘coffins’ and they will be re­placed with a new land­scap­ing lay­out.

David Mad­di­son, the Out­let man­ager, has pre­vi­ously said the idea is to: “Trans­form the round­about into a beau­ti­ful, land­scaped gar­den.”
