Mark Hopewell and I (nearly) completed the top structure of the Organ sculpture yesterday. Constructed out of old track signage, steel pipes, and various nuts and bolts, Organ refers to the two 12″ Rail Howitzers that were stationed in Shepherdswell and Eythorne during WW2. For more information concerning the role of the East Kent Railway in the second world war, please see one of my previous posts:
