Skelton High Street, Cleveland


Contract length


As part of their Townscape Heritage Programme the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a grant towards the Townscape Project in the village of Skelton in Cleveland. The public realm works were the first to be completed for the Townscape project and involved the removal of 700m2 of existing flags and their replacement with new paving flags. Car parking bays have been demarcated and road lining completed. New street furniture has been introduced including bespoke oak seating at the junction of High Street and The Hills. Bespoke tree pits were created and trees planted to the western edge and soft landscaping completed. Information boards relating to the heritage of Skelton High Street have been introduced to the area and traffic and pedestrian management system including new bollards and fencing installed. The 75m stone wall to The Hills was repaired and a 15m long bespoke brick wall with ornate fencing and panel constructed to accommodate a community mural. The community and local school were heavily involved in the design and placement of bespoke seating and community mural which resulted in a mosaic being created.
