A NEW installation to celebrate Heavitree is being manufactured by Exeter firm Wood and Wood.

The Heavitree Arch, designed by artist Michael Fairfax and poet Ralph Hoyte will form a focal point in Gordon's Place.

The arch features the words of Richard Hooker, a leading theologian who was born in Heavitree in 1554, and a central glass door that holds the words of the yew of Heavitree.

This is just part of the £550,000 Heavitree environmental improvement scheme, which includes a new public space and seating area, improved pedestrian crossings, new paving and tree and shrub planting.
