Pulhamite 'anticline', Madeira Walk, Ramsgate
Pulhamite 'anticline', Madeira Walk, Ramsgate
Madeira Walk has been made to resemble a rocky gully by the use of Pulhamite, a man-made material invented by James Pulham (1820-98) of the firm James Pulham and Son of Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. Pulhamite, which usually looked like gritty sandstone often embedded with imitation fossils, was used to bond natural rocks and sundry rubble together or was crafted to simulate natural stone features. Its use at Ramsgate dates from 1894 and is far from uncommon in parks and gardens elsewhere. Here it has been ingeniously employed to resemble an anticline.
