Fiona Cloke Associates were commissioned to design a new entrance and gateway to the former Markham Colliery site. The site is now popular with cyclists and walkers and has areas designated for the future development of sustainable industry and crafts. Local stone was utilised to define entrances, parking and sitting areas with incorporation of bespoke railings. Planting was designed to link the adjacent areas of natural regeneration with the highway environment. A series of lakes with a cycleway link have been designed for an adjacent site on the reclaimed colliery.
