The sun – remember that?! – shone for the launch of the Heritage Trail at Bold Venture Park in Darwen.
The Friends of Bold Venture Park commissioned local sculptor Marjan Wouda to create a series of artworks – most of them suspended from trees – to commemorate a flood that swept through the area’s slums in 1848, killing 12 people.
Marjan says: “There was such a sadness about the story. Creating the sculptures has been quite a challenge. I wanted to make a series of sculptures unique to the park and I looked to the town’s history for inspiration.”
A BBC gallery of pictures gives a good impression of what Marjan and the group have created.
