The Beacons spinning disc installation at the East Cliff bandstand are now being brought down.
The four structures, which each have a coloured steel disc at the top of a steel pole weighted by a tripod base, were installed in September 2021 and were scheduled to be in place for one year.
But Margate’s Turner Contemporary gained permission to extend that until this month.
Today (September 11) workmen are onsite dismantling the structures.
The installation was part of the Pioneering Places project with some 70 Ramsgate schoolchildren from St Laurence’s Junior Academy and Ramsgate Arts Primary working with artist Conrad Shawcross.
The children involved in the project researched Ramsgate, with a focus on the historic character of its Royal Harbour, and this was used for their ideas for the artwork.
The structures are being dismantled and taken away on trailers over several trips so as to spread the weight of the loads.
The area will have groundworks to return it to its former condition.
Turner Contemporary has been contacted to ask about any future plans for the Beacons.
