Bilston Interpretation Point, Bollards & Handrail.
Bilston is a small village on the outskirts of Edinburgh which has suffered from a lack of investment since Bilston Glen Colliery closed in 1988.  
Midlothian Council are now improving the area & as part of the Bilston Open Space Improvement Plan they commissioned The Interpretation Point, bollards & handrails.  
The text on the Interpretation Point has been laser cut into 8 mm sheet & tells some historic facts about Bilston including references to the infamous body snatchers Burke & Hare and to Bilston Glen Colliery which in its heyday employed 2,300 workers.
The Bollards & handrail posts, with references within the design to Bilston Glen Colliery, are formed from 40 x 130 mm mild steel, tapering towards the ground & the handrail is 50 mm hollow tube.
All the metalwork has been galvanized to protect against corrosion and spray painted Ratho Grey.
