Draped Woman in danger

Historic England has included the Draped Woman sculpture, North Verbena Gardens W6 in their Heritage at Risk Register.

The report says:

“Cast concrete sculpture, circa 1959 by Karel Vogel, situated in an open space off the Great West Road. It was an early commission of the London County Council’s Patronage of the Arts scheme, unusually commissioned to provide visual amenity in compensation for a major road scheme. The cast concrete is now cracking in many places, and past repairs are both unsightly and failing. The concrete is also being damaged by rusting structural iron elements.”

I have asked the Council’s Conservation Officer what we are going to do about it.
