Ramsbury Primary School Rainscape
Preshute Primary School Rainwall
My rainwall project design and build for Preshute Primary School in Manton, Wilts, features wiggly downpipes, with hoppers as planters, rain chains and clear sections to allow the flow of rainwater to be observed. These stormwater planters are made from cattle troughs and slow the flow of rainwater.
Designed for and funded by ARK (Action for the River Kennet) and built with the help of volunteers from the school and community.
