Beautification of Wellington Front, Gibraltar, 2016
Description: Wellington Front (1850) is a long stretch of curtain wall that forms part of the Line Wall Curtain. It stands on the site of the old city wall built during the Moorish period and subsequently modified by the Spanish and British.
The Moorish wall had significant weaknesses which were pointed out as early as 1770, notably the fact that it had no advanced works to protect it from being bombarded or assaulted. These problems were tackled during the 1840s when Prince Albert’s and Wellington Front were built to straighten and strengthen the line of the curtain wall.
Blueton was been awarded the contract for street furniture at the refurbishment of Wellington Front.
