Frond is one of three sculptures at Lee Quarry which celebrate the area’s industrial heritage as part of the Valley of Stone project. It is a landmark visible from the main route between Bacup and Stacksteads.

The sculpture focuses on the area's quarrying heritage and highlights the stunning views around Lee Quarry.  Mid Pennine Arts worked with schoolchildren from Holy Trinity Primary School who helped to design the sculpture and the mosaic panelling.

Valley of Stone is managed by Groundwork Pennine Lancashire. The artwork was managed and commmissioned by local art agency Mid Pennine Arts.
