Weighty Friend at the Iron Bridge 10 October 2015

The iconic Iron Bridge in Shropshire, built in 1779 by Abraham Darby III and symbol of the Industrial Revolution, became the focal point for an art installation, Weighty Friend, led by Artist in Residence Faye Claridge with the assistance of 50 volunteers on Saturday, 10th October.

The Bridge, which spans over 100 feet, was covered with hundreds of colourful rags by volunteers from the local community from 10:15am until 11am. The finished piece remained for a few minutes as a spectacle for visitors and photographers to record.
