''Unlock'' at Pennington Flash



Unlocked is a book holding the secrets and stories of the canals.

I aim to use the physical presence of the lock gates to stimulate each traveller’s memories of the canals and hint at the vast library of tales yet to be unearthed.

The sculpture will dominate the viewer and give a taste of the feeling of entering a lock.

The aim of this sculpture is to capture the essence of the canals in an up close and personal way.


“Greenheart-Northern soul”


Two benches line the canal near “Unlock” carved into them is “Greenheart-Northern soul” Greenheart is the project of which the sculpture and Northern soul referes to the power of the local people as well as the music that originated in Wigan.
