Three Wooden Henges have been installed on the path at Birkdale, near the Weld Road car park. They are in a small patch of wetland – perfectly sited with the artwork representing rare and endangered plant species in the area.
These forms were inspired by the flora of the Birkdale hills and were used to inspire three Go with the Flow groups to make flowers and plant forms out of delicately twisted coloured wire.
These were then set in resin inside recesses in the wooden henges, each one cut out by hand by Phill.
When the three Henges were ready they were loaded onto a trailer, taken on site and unloaded, under Pepper’s watchful eye..
and hauled into place
so that digging could start.
It was hot work –
only pausing to rescue a toad deep in one of the holes..
Finally the holes were deep enough to lift each Henge upright and set then in place.
Making a beautiful trio.
Thank you Go with the Flow Bootle and Southport. and Free Flow, Formby.
