Foundation cast on top of blinding concrete with formwork in place for the column

Well this particular column is in a cave – designed to support the roof – at the bottom of a 20m cliff, in a beauty spot.

All the materials had to be transported along a narrow track, concrete had to be mixed and lowered down the cliff face before being poured into the formwork.  When the shutters were struck the column was faced with locally sourced stone.
