16m2 Terrabound Resin Bound Autumn Toffee 5mm and 12m2 Terrabound Resin Bound Terracotta 6mm
Completed February 2017
Situated in Alrewas, on the edge of the National Forest, the Arboretum is home to over 330 memorials.
The new memorial, a representation of all the past, present and future members of No. 47 Squadron, features three pilots by sculptor Peter Naylor and is sited next to the River Thame. The design required a Resin Bound paved surround in a wave pattern using two contrasting colours that would be aesthetically pleasing but not detract from the sculpture.
Terrabound Resin Bound surfacing in Autumn Toffee and Terracotta blends were selected and Coatech Ltd installed the pattern, segregating each coloured area with an aluminium edging strip. The BBA approved Terrabound surface is porous, low maintenance, hard wearing, smooth underfoot and wheelchair friendly, making it accessible all year round.
The new memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum was unveiled on the 1st March 2017. The ceremony began with a service and a one minute silence, followed by the flypast of three Hercules aircraft, crewed by members of 47 Squadron, based at RAF Brize Norton.
The Terrabound installation was completed in February 2017.
