Crowborough’s Rock Snake to be turned into a permanent feature

Crowborough Town Council have decided to create a permanent feature on Chapel Green from the rock snake which has been lovingly created during the pandemic.

It proposes to have the stones installed on the lower, triangular area. The current design proposal involves a low, semi-circular wall which can contain and display the stones to their best advantage. This feature will then be surrounded by a planted forget-me-knot and lavender maze, providing an enjoyable area for all to enjoy and preserving the beautifully decorated stones.

Initial design proposal for rock snake feature

The final designs and costings will be discussed at the meeting of the Communication and Events Committee on 11th August before being presented to Full Council on 15th September.  Once approved, it is anticipated the feature will be installed during the Autumn.

Recent weather conditions are impacting the condition of some of the stones, and the Council would encourage anyone who has placed a stone on Chapel Green to check on its condition, and to re-paint or varnish them ahead of the project’s installation.
