Torrington Common

Today I met up with Mike Collingham, Chair of the Committee of Conservators for the Torrington Commons and as I also discovered a fellow ‘Keighleyite’. Together we identified the best place for the sculpture that will join the line up from the Summerhouse at Rosemoor to Palmer House in Torrington. We had to take into account the sensitivity of the land itself as well as think about the sculptures impact on its surroundings.

I am really pleased that this part of the project can go ahead, the inital idea in my head has now changed from what was a long linear work to something that from Rosemoor will now create a kind of full stop, I think that from the Common itself the work will now be altogether more interesting.

Here’s a photo of the actual ‘steepish’ site under a large ash tree.
