THE Rotary Club of Kinver returned to where it all began on Saturday when they unveiled a refurbished Toposcope on Kinver Edge.

The Toposcope was the first major project undertaken by Kinver Rotarians after the club was first formed in 1985.

They raised in the region of £8,000 to erect the Toposcope which has since established itself as a popular landmark in the area.

However, the weather has taken its toll over the years so the four foot diameter slate top has been replaced by a piece of black granite.

Work has been carried out by one of the country's top stonemasons, Perfitt of Norfolk, to replace the original lettering, which was unveiled at noon on Saturday May 17 by South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson.

Kinver Rotarians obtained £7,000 to repair the Toposcope, most of which was provided through charitable organisations.

Spokesman Mike Deathridge said: "It's money well spent. My wife and I walk on Kinver Edge almost everyday and never a day goes by without seeing someone looking at the Toposcope."
