Roundabout installations

Six roundabouts on key entrance gateway roads into St Austell have been identified to become sites along the Garden Route set to host beautiful new horticultural installations – featuring biodiverse perennial plants, signature silver birch trees , specialist ceramic art commissions and street furniture that presents the town’s clay heritage.

Signature silver birch trees will be planted with perennial underplanting. A ceramic installation of tall cylinders by local artist Jenny Beavan is proposed for a site which will create a visual connection with the trees and link with the heritage of the clay pits.

Groundworks will begin soon.
