Commissioned by the Stacksteads Riverside Park Group, this riverside walk is dotted with carved gritstone sculptures by artist Jim Starr, including the sculptures shown on the right on this page. Stone Picnic benches by the artist are also to be found in this attractive wooded spot.

A short walk along the road towards Waterfoot, you will find a further large stone carved sculpture by Starr, which was donated to the people of Rossendale by the Sculptor in 2010, in memory of his late wife, Anne Star (Images right, third from top). This piece can be found at The Glen, next to an Irwell Sculpture Trail piece entitled The Weave.
