Set against the stunning Irwell Valley, Ian Randall’s sculpture refers to the remnants of the once thriving textile and mining industries of the area.

The large timber sections made from local ash are cradled in cogs. This structure suggests movement, throwing the timber forward and releasing the stones within its folds, like seeds bringing new growth.

The short walk to In The Picture is a must for fans of Lancashire’s beautiful countryside.
