Maybe Penny Plant would do it for free?

Nah, the obvious answer is the public, people on sites like this and others, it's The Big Society isn't it, and we're the ones that seem to care. At the bottom it could say, discretely, Provided by the Friends of Silbury...

The good thing about that is we could maybe have a bit of a say in the design, and be allowed to source them, probably from China, for a very small fraction of what EH pays....

A few years back I floated the idea of a competition grouped by age, to design three new roadside entrance signs for the WHS, sponsored by whoever. It came to nought because the cash was unlikley to be found to even run the competition. If this competition idea was used re the Silbury signage as an outreach art project, it would be an EH exercise suggested to local schools to educate pupils about the monument and why it shouldn't be climbed.

Local schools used to take classes to the summit!
