A Journey to Hidden Places

We are often asked about the interesting art work that has appeared.in the area over the the last few years as part of a public art strategy for Firth Park and Wincobank commissioned by the North Sheffield Regeneration Team, Sheffield City Council and created by the Y SO? Artists Team.  

You can read all about the development of the art work by clicking here.

There is also an interesting leaflet to help you find your way around  the Journey trail which can be downloaded here.

Friends of Wincobank Hill and members of Upper Wincobank Chapel contributed ideas and information which the artists used when creating the three sculptures in Higher Wincobank:
  • Posh Pillar and Her Daughters
  • The Star-crossed Queen
  • The Enchanted Chairs
There is also a pair of the fragrant Smelly Wellies outside the Chapel door and a Giant's Foot on the gate to the Wincobank Hill from Bluebell Road. There are many other fascinating clues to past and present hidden around Lower Wincobank, Woolley Woods and Firth Park. There are no captions because the art work is intended to raise questions, leaving the viewer to use imagination and local history knowledge to make connections.

Come and have a look. If you are part of a group contact us through this website to arrange a visit and a guided walk.  

Or - if you just want a few more clues about the history represented by the artwork - contact us through our website and we will share our ideas of what it may mean...
