ASF manufactured this large cast iron ground compass as a feature piece for the new South Entrance and Waterside Development at Leeds Station/Brewery Wharf. It required 17 individual patterns to be made, so the 17 castings from that would build up and make the complete disc of the ground compass, approximatley 3m in diameter. Ductile SG Iron was used in the casting to ensure the ground compass would remain undamaged even if driven over. The finished product has been left unfinished to oxidize and patina over time.
