David Kemp’s Waterwheel marks the entrance to Burrs Country Park, once the site of a large mill. The work, half immersed in masonry suggests an uncovered relic of the huge waterwheels which originally powered the industry of the Irwell Valley.

The wheel symbolises the process of constant change, the changing of a river into an industrial site and its change back into countryside again.
