Based on the history of the Newstead village, this piece represents the Mine Shaft Wheel that took the miners to work down the pits. This was commissioned in 2008.
Each of the eight segments that the Women–in-Newstead group worked on signifies an aspect of the history of the village up to the present day.
This work was again requested by the group using Heritage Lottery funding and used traditional rug making techniques of Hooking and Proddy.
I then joined them all together by patchwork methods and we all prodded around the outside.
It is currently hanging in the corridor in the Newstead Community centre.
