Colourfields (Panopticons)

East Lancs

Colourfields (one of the Panopticon sculptures for Pennine Lancashire), was designed by Jo Rippon Architecture with artist Sophie Smallhorn. Colourfields is a dramatic transformation of the former cannon battery in Blackburn's Corporation Park, originally installed for the Park's opening in 1857 to house two Russian cannons captured during the Crimean War. The battery had since fallen into disrepair, and the design and construction of Colourfields enabled part of this important structure and its associations with Blackburn's history to be preserved rather than dismantled. From the top of the structure, the panorama of the Park below, the town beyond and distant views out towards the coast are simply breathtaking. See our website for a map and location details.
