Bilston Sign

Summary

Type Marker

     The blue mast-like pole has a large silver spiral form at the top. The top of the spiral has two flying doves on it. The doves are taken from the Bilston coat of arms and represent Faith.
     The idea of including decorative seats and pieces of public art as part of the scheme to pedestrianise the centre of Bilston came from officers in Wolverhampton Planning Department.
