Teak stairway arrives in Bethnal Green

Trustees of the Stairway to Heaven Memorial Trust today watched the arrival of the teak stairway 11 years after the Bethnal Green Memorial was originally proposed. The solid teak structure will soon be craned into position next to the Bethnal Green station entrance stair where the disaster took place in 1943. The stairway has 173 conical lightwells cut into the roof plane, each representing a person that died in the disaster. The surnames of each of the victims are carved into the teak on the external faces of stairway. The stairway was fabricated by The Greenoak Carpentry Company with cnc engineering by Solutions in Wood.
