A two and-a-half-year project to provide Luggate with a landmark acknowledging its transport history got the finishing touches last week.

Two concrete draught horses created by sculptor Deane Weastell were fixed into place, to lead a restored wagon Reid Transport began using almost 100 years ago, to cart wool from Upper Clutha sheep stations to the railhead in Cromwell.

Helping put the horses in place were (from left) Josh Olley, Geoff Taylor (chairman of the Luggate Community Association), John Holland, Graeme Perkins and Jim Bryson. Mr Weastell is at the back.
