This sculpture of c. 1993, in timber, brick and metal, was designed and built by Freeform artists with the help of the community of John Spence School. These mooring posts were traditionally used in the River Tyne. The project was sponsored by the Tyne and Wear Development Corporation with support from Swarland Brick Company, North Tyneside Council and Scottish and Newcastle Breweries.
