Jubilee Shelters

Junilee Bus Shelter under construction Gommes Forge

In the summer of 2002 a need arose to replace the bus shelters adjacent to ‘The Whip’ and St. John’s School, in Main Road, Lacey Green. Lacey Green Parish Council commissioned Gomme’s Forge to design and construct the shelters.

It was suggested the shelters should commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth and a plaque was attached to each inscribed:

‘1952 Golden Jubilee 2002’

Here, the basic structure of the new bus shelters is being prepared in the Forge yard.

It is hoped both these shelters will provide the passengers of Lacey Green and Loosley Row with protection from wind and weather for many years to come.
