The project is part of Transported’s On Your Doorstep programme which aims to brighten up neglected and derelict areas to make them more attractive to visitors.

When the site was chosen Tim Machin, of Long Sutton and District Civic Society, who nominated the Common Pit area for On Your Doorstep, said: “We have been looking after the site for a number of years on behalf of the community.

“But it’s not as well-known as it should be, largely because it’s invisible from the road for much of the year.

“That’s why the Civic Society is both delighted and excited to be working with Transported on this project which will raise its profile among local people and dramatically improve its signposting and setting.”

Kristina Taylor of Transported and artist Robyn Woolston were present at the unveiling with Mr Machin and Tony Button of the Civic Society.
