What a remarkable place this is! One of the main entrances is unobtrusively set between houses and a council waste site but a short walk brings you out on a beautiful south west facing chalk bank with long ranging views across the valley. The area comprises Hutchinson’s bank, Chapel Bank and Threecorner Grove and is within walking distance of New Addington tram station.
This is a well-known area for butterflies and orchids and is expertly managed by London Wildlife Trust. What better than seeing a dingy skipper flying over some yellow archangel?
Landmark have supplied a range of products at this very special location. Firstly some lamppost fingerarms directing passengers from the New Addington tram station to the site entrance, then some elegant steel monoliths at the 3 entrances. Finally some timber fingerpost signs provide wayfinding around the site.
The steel monoliths are made from weathering steel, also known as Corten, and these will gradually weather down over time to an attractive orange/red patina making a eye-catching statement against the lush green foliage of Hutchinson’s Bank.
Just over a year later we revisited Hutchinson’s Bank to see how the monoliths were weathering. They’re looking amazing with the dull steel finish having become a beautiful orange patina that contrasts very well with the background greenery. We’ll be watching these over the coming years and will update this case study.
Your project is our project, the Landmark team is waiting to hear from you…
