We are honoured that our design for the new Ilkley fountain has been selected through public vote, and that there will be a celebration of the moors, and more specifically sphagnum moss, at the centre of our town. We have been working with Improving Ilkley to adapt the design for large-scale and have made two trips to discuss the development with fabricator James Wilkinson in North Yorkshire with trustees, an architect and and an engineer. Ilkley Gazette press release. Nb: the above image is a digital rendition and impression of the scale and design of the fountain. We believe that to enable further and constructive discussion around the fountain, the next stage should be a small model which would be an exact replica (in the proposed materials) of the proposed final design.
