Metal ramps were never my favourite thing, although I was over-enthusiastic about metal surface on wood construction at one point. This was at a time when local authorities were just starting to take a vague interest in providing facilities. Things have come on a long way since then. I’m still amazed and delighted when I see ramps and parks popping up all over the place. Many of them are as useless as ever, while others seem great, but it’s the number of the things which amazes me.
