SLDC Signs

Working closely with The Knack Design Company Ltd, Wightman Engineering Ltd and SLDC to erect seventeeninformation signs . These were erected on the streets of Kendal in December 2009. They provide information about the particular area you are in with historic photos, facts and figures and how Kendalians went abouttheir daily life, including some famous names (and not so famous) who worked, wrote and loved the area. There are walks highlighted on a map of Kendal taking you round different routes, all taking in parts of Kendal which you wouldn't normally see.

Our work was to provide the concrete bases onto which the signs would be fastened. This involved the removal of the paved area, digging the hole, which meant avoiding the many buried services,gas pipes, electric cables, sewer and water pipes. Once the hole was dug it was then filled with concrete.On thereturn visit after the concrete had set, the signs were then fastened down and the paved area reinstated asbefore.

With our Street Works Accreditation and being an approved SLDC Minor works contractor we are proud to be involved with this project.

We have bothlived in this area all our lives andenjoyed readingsome of the things weknew about, andlearning about the things we didn't. We both hope you get the oppurtunity to visit all the signs, you may even burn off some calories on route!!
