The Parish Council purchased land at Centenary Field in 1994 to commemorate 100 years of the Parish Council, and the now locally famous Red Wheel was placed in the field as a monument to the area’s industrial history.
But you may have noticed that lately the Centenary Wheel has been looking a little worse for wear. Exposure to the elements had left our bright red landmark rusted, dirty, and generally looking a little battered!
So, this spring, Frampton Cotterell Parish Council decided the Wheel needed some sprucing up!
We commissioned some fantastic local craftsmen to work on the wheel, cleaning, de-rusting, polishing, and repainting it to make it look beautiful once again. They’ve done a brilliant job, and the results are undeniable!
Take a look below for Before-, During-, and After Refurbishment photos of our Wheel, and see for yourself…
Have you seen our newly repainted Centenary Wheel at Centenary Field in person? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
