In Brass Art’s dramatic neon sculpture they refer to Radcliffe’s rich history, with evidence of habitation stretching back to the bronze age. Radcliffe Tower, dating from 1403, is the town's oldest structure throwing a shadow of history across the area.

The work, at Radcliffe Metrolink Station, responds to the passage of time and the trams.

Brass Art are Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican, three artists based in Manchester and Glasgow.
