The winners bench with the Latin inscription “Everyone’s A Winner” complements my “START/FINISH” line and the cast-iron map installed over 10 years ago as a marker for the North Downs Way. The Latin inscription Victores Sumus Omnes was the language spoken in the Middle Ages when the Via Francigena and the pilgrim route were founded. If you look up the inscription, you might smile and realise that it literally means “Winners are we all”.

START/FINISH Line (2010)

AlmaTischlerWoodA5.inddAlma Tischlerwood wins North Downs Way End-of-Trail Marker (2010). Dover Arts Development (DAD) announced that a British artist – Alma Tischlerwood has been commissioned by the Kent County Council for the End-of-Trail Marker with her START/FINISH Line. The 12-person jury were particularly impressed by Tischlerwood’s sense of purposeful playfulness. She told us “You have to strike a balance between lively innovation and maintaining the traditions of the locality”



Inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson’s phrase, ‘Nature, red in tooth and claw’, this installation SIMPLY RED & GREEN foregrounded the colour red. It was facilitated in collaboration with Sara Willett and Brian Archer at the Luxmore Gardens, in SE London, during August 2009, commissioned by the Brockley Assembly Fund, and kindly supported by Lewisham Council
