TOUR DE RIPPONDEN SET IN YORKSHIRE STONE

TOUR DE RIPPONDEN SET IN YORKSHIRE STONE

Local craftsmen have decided to enter into the spirit of the Tour de France route passing through Ripponden and past the showroom.

Brian and Lewis Brooks of B D Brooks Stonemasons, Ripponden, and a colleague Karl of Waterjet, decided to carve a bike out of solid stone.

This unusual bike can be seen in the window of B D Brooks Stonemasons in Ripponden and has already caused a lot of interest.

B D BROOKS STONEMASONS

(www.bdbrooksfireplaces.com) have worked all over the country carrying out bespoke stone masonry, with fireplaces a speciality. Waterjet has cut templates occasionally for B D BROOKS, and together thought the stone bike would be a great idea.

After the Tour de France, in order to support the whole of the Yorkshire area, the bike is to be raffled in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Raffle tickets are available in the showroom of B D BROOKS in Ripponden and at various other local outlets.
