The Builders

Many of the posts here, are to show the fabulous achievements of past builders, makers, artisans and artists.  They gave us the world that we live in but very few are remembered by name.  Here and there can be seen works that commemorate their efforts. 

Above is “The Unknown Navvy” (navigator) by Anthony Stones which is currently at Gerrards Cross rail station just outside London.

Below is “The Building Worker” by Alan Wilson which can be found just north of the Tower of London beside the main road.  Its plaque reads:-

“For the thousands of building workers who have lost their lives at work, we commemorate you”.

“For the thousands of building workers who are today building and rebuilding towns and cities across the United Kingdom, we celebrate you”.
