Atom (one of the Panopticon sculptures in Pennine Lancashire) was designed by Peter Meacock. Atom rests on the hillside above Wycoller village in Wycoller Country Park. Constructed in ferro-cement with a surface coating of metal-based paint, it is both a striking contemporary viewing point and shelter from which to enjoy Pendle's glorious scenery, and an intriguing and beautiful object which can be viewed from afar. From inside, its circular viewing spaces frame spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Wycoller is a historic settlement dating back beyond 1000BC. It has close links with the Brontes, and Charlotte is thought to have been a frequent visitor. See our website for a map and location details. (Please note that the central steel ball is currently missing from the sculpture due to vandalism.)
