Large stone flags in front of Wakefield Town Hall, Wood Street
Large stone flags in front of Wakefield Town Hall, Wood Street
The size of these flags astonished me, but it occurs to me now that they are in scale with this huge building. I estimate the size of the whole flag in the centre foreground to be 8 feet* by 5 or 6 feet possibly; the one beyond it to the right might be 10 feet long. How thick? How heavy? How were they produced? How were they laid? Further from the building the scale of the paving reduces: the paler band of regular-looking slabs partly in the sun might be 4-5 feet long, of concrete or granite. Beyond them in the tree shadow are some flags of natural stone of more conventional size, 2-3 feet.

*Judging by the man on the right in SE3320 : Wakefield Town Hall the corner of the structure on the left is a bit over 5 feet/say 16m. The near long side of the above flag is 15 x 16 = 24m: it's the length of a standard parking space!
