Celebration of bus shelter restoration

A CELEBRATION event is being held to mark the restoration of an historic shelter in Scarborough’s South Cliff.

The English oak shelter in Shuttleworth Gardens, off the Esplanade, has been fully restored thanks to the involvement of Scarborough Civic Society and a number of other supporters.

The work was carried out by Scarborough firm Andy Whitelaw Joinery.

The garden was presented to the town by local businessman Alfred Shuttleworth in 1917. The oak shelter was already in the garden at that time so it is around 100 years old.

In recent years it had become dilapidated and has now been fully restored using 10-year seasoned English Oak.

Anyone who is interested in the project is welcome to attend a gathering in the gardens on Tuesday at 2pm.
