Art in High Places


As part of a wider regeneration strategy for East Lancashire, four new pieces of public art, collectively known as Panopticons, have been installed on remote hilltops around the region. The location of the new artwork was chosen to help people see the East Lancashire area from a new angle. Once you have trekked up a huge hill to visit one of the four pieces, you find yourself with an unrivalled view of the surrounding countryside that you would not ordinarily have seen. Louise Tickle examines the many challenges faced by the project and explores the benefits other pieces of public art have had on different areas across the Northwest.
