Midge Lamp, New Marske Roundabout

Geotag Icon Show on map

This sculpture of an ironstone miners ‘Midge’ lamp by Graham Anderton is still a work in progress and has not yet been officially unveiled.
At the end of July 2013 it looked like this on a metal base.

In fact when it first arrived in April 2013 there was a miner with tools sat on the edge as can be seen in this photo taken by Nekoglyph (presumably he may return)

When I passed by in early August its now sitting on top of a mine spoil heap.
