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.
Japanese knotweed - a plant that can grow through concrete and damage the foundations of houses. Giant hogweed - a plant that has sap that burns the skin and leaves wounds that can be aggravated by light up to six years after the initial contact. This may sound like something out of a science fiction film, but non-native invasive plants are one of the biggest threats to the UK's biodiversity. Ciara Leeming investigates some of the countries most dangerous plants and explores the problems associated with their control and eradication.
