An arts organisation has pledged £1 million towards creating a massive sculpture on the England-Scotland border.
Have your say
The Walled City of Carlisle had such Toll Booths to make money in form of a tax on goods etc. They were English Gate, Irish gate and Scotch Gate. The Border heritage (England, Scotland and Wales) needs a signage a little better than just plain street sign saying England, whilst Scotland, Welcomes You... Is the One million Scottish pounds coming out of banking? Chris, Why just a quid? Why not a Scottish fiver at least to get into our dear neighbour Scotland please.
All that money to be wasted on something no one wants and that, lets face it, doesn't look very good anyway. Why not spend the money helping artists who are creating *real* art in the area, money always goes to these pretentious schemes.
With all the cutbacks they should built a toll booth to make money, a tenner to get into England and a pound to get into Scotland??
