I live by the coast in Portishead. The old site is now covered by Avon and Somerset Police HQ. THe five statues in a park on Port Marine are meant to recall the old radio masts. An other suggestion has been to display a small piece of one of the masts on a new roundabout. So far this has been resisted by authority but I will bring it up again at next month's town council meeting. We have the South West Ship show in Portishead on April 12, perhaps somebody will have other ideas. Such an important installation should not just allowed to fade away
