Disley Michael - Topping Out

Topping Out

'Topping Out' is based on a photograph of a topping out ceremony during the construction of the power station which stood on the Portmarine site. The idea was that there would be another topping out ceremony in 2000 to celebrate the first occupants of the homes at Portmarine. Again a bas-relief carving. Derbyshire Gritstone.
