Poetry Landmarks

The Spennymoor Signs


(Public Art)


Child-Friendly Landmark

Companion pieces to The Spennymoor Letters. 3 town boundary signs with all the surnames of the town people laser-cut into them. The mix of family names that never moved away and new names to the area is itself a poem about the town.
