Thanks you guys! Cherokee, I have been staring at your top photo for an hour. It is clear that nowhere do we have steps, but only slopes. Quite wide, too. It all makes an attractive assembly, and I >>> MUST <<< do something with it. Heaven help me, I cannot resist it.
Yet I am puzzled. What on earth is the item ringed? I too have looked at lots of photos, but this is the very first time that I have seen any inkling of that. There is a shadow across it so it might be some sort of decoration set in the road surface. ??? Odd. What do others make of it?
“David Ward, Cromer Prospect lead artist, has worked with many people on a permanent installation that celebrates the town’s principal lifeboats set in Cromer Pier’s forecourt. Twenty-four granite stones, each one representing a lifeboat, have been set along lines looking out to sea, pointing in the direction of rescue missions.”
What a treasure trove! A cornucopia of riches! Thank you, folks. It is obvious that the place is much loved.
So that circle is a compass. Odd that I never saw it when modelling before. I show below my original entrance - it does not require much alteration except the inclusion of the compass.
I don’t remember it being there when I went. Perhaps it is something recent.
Yes, that is my thought too. Thanks, Wendy.
Cherokee, your photo just about wraps it up. There’s even a ramp from one part of the beach to another. Well, I reckon that I have enough information to start modelling. Thanks a bunch, guys.
