The Navvies Monument in Otley, on Church Lane, Otley is an important Grade II listed memorial to all the Navvies who built the railways of the United Kingdom.
The memorial is a replica of the north portal of the Bramhope Tunnel which runs for over 2 miles and was built for the Leeds & Thisk Railway between 1846 and 1849.
Over 2,000 men worked on the tunnel during its construction and once completed a monument was erected for the 23 men who lost their lives, the memorial is a replica of the north portal and records the names of the 23 navvies.
We are delighted and honoured to have been invited to undertake the repairs to the Navvies Memorial that commemorated those railway workers who died building local tunnels. It can be found in the churchyard of All Saints Parish Church, Otley, for which Carl is the church architect. Following a meeting with Otley Conservation Task Force.
Carl has assessed the condition of the monument and is currently undertaking a schedule of repair.
