Nailing Home
Nailing Home
Standing at the corner of Smyrna Street and Ainsworth Road, "Nailing Home" is the work of local sculptor, Jack Wright. It is part of the Irwell Sculpture Trail (LinkExternal link )

The work was commissioned jointly by the Irwell Sculpture Trail and Irwell Valley Housing Association. It takes the form of enlarged frost nails. The stems of the nails are meant to suggest growth with the heads reminiscent of a house roof, thus representing The Irwell Valley Housing Association who have developed social housing on this site (SD7807 : Smyrna Street).
The Irwell Sculpture Trail
The Irwell Sculpture Trail is the largest sculpture route in the UK. It follows a winding route which extends for more than 33 miles from Bacup to Salford Quays and features more than 70 artworks from local, national and international artists.
