Ir­well Sculp­ture Trail, Lan­cashire

The Week - Junior - - Animals And The Environment -

On a 33-mile trail from the Lan­cashire town of Bacup to Sal­ford Quays, in Greater Manch­ester, walk­ers are treated to more than 70 pieces of art­work from in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal artists. The Ir­well Sculp­ture Trail is the UK’s largest sculp­ture route and can be en­joyed on foot or by bike. One of the most fa­mous pieces on show is called Halo. This is an 18-me­tre-wide steel struc­ture with a hole in the cen­tre of a large disc and glows blue at night, us­ing low-en­ergy bulbs.
