A PUBLIC consultation session will take place in the Market Place on Friday to help shape the creation of a heritage walk and four new heritage panels.

Wiltshire Council has commissioned Salisbury Arts Centre to oversee the creation of four large-scale heritage panels which will be installed in the Market Place and will support a new heritage trail around the city.

On Friday night residents will be given the opportunity to meet the artists involved in the project. They will also be able to contribute to it by following the proposed trail and making notes of any heritage features they spot.

Each of the four panels will focus on a different aspect of Salisbury’s heritage, including a homage to the windows of Salisbury Cathedral.

The panels will be designed by local artist Alice Harwood and the metalwork will be produced in The Forge, Amesbury, by Andrew Rawlings.

The public can help shape the panels and heritage trail through a series of public consultation sessions. Further community workshops will take place in order to gather and share more information about Salisbury’s heritage.

In later sessions people will also be given the opportunity to contribute creatively to the panels themselves through public welding sessions.
