On the site of the former Outwood Colliery, Ulrich Rückriem created one of his largest stone settings to date. Ten monolithic stone pieces are set over a number of locations. Columns stand at each of the two main entrances to the Colliery, a group of seven tall slabs are installed on a flat plateau and the largest slab which stands eight metres in height marks where the former railtrack meets up with three other paths.

Ulrich Rückriem is a German artist with works sited all over the world from Berlin and Dublin to Tokyo and Barcelona.
