Church Piece, Charlton Kings - renovations to mosaic water rill
The much-loved water rill feature was installed as part of the CK 2000 improvements to Church Piece. The mosaic designs were created by Balcarras students at that time, and feature an imaginative collection of frogs, a clock, leaves, and water creatures.
Time has not been kind to the mosaics and the whole structure is badly deteriorating, with significant spoiling having occurred to its surface over the last couple of years. Fortunately, Cheltenham Borough Council and Charlton Kings Parish Council have come together to jointly fund its replacement, by the original designers and constructors Oliver Budd.
The work is scheduled to begin this month with the original structure being removed, before the surface is levelled and the new mosaic put in place early in the new year.
So, if you see people taking a hammer and chisel to our lovely water rill mosaic, it's in a good cause!
