The Essex-Merrimac Drawbridge – Center Pier - $0


This amazing, perfectly round center pier is a remarkable engineering and architectural feat. Comprised of twenty-four 2-3 ton pie-shaped radius granite wedges. Each 2’ high circular course was interfaced with 3’-4’ X 8’L landing type radius pieces, weighing approx. 4 tons ea. At our granite farm, we are re-assembling complete 2’H X 26’ diameter courses – setting them up as historic elevated terraces and patios. We also rescued the 8’ diameter X 2’ thick, 7 ton granite turntable disc that capped the center pier. The drawbridge mechanism was attached to this monstrosity. With these, one would … add A LOT of history to their hardscape.
