The Panopticon Above Wycoller
The Panopticon Above Wycoller
Panopticons (2003-7) was a creative project to erect a series of 21st century landmarks across East Lancashire to symbolise the renaissance of the area.

“Atom”, the Panopticon chosen for Pendle was designed by Peter Meacock and Katrina Novomestska. It is constructed in ferro-cement with a surface coating of metal-based paint.

It is intended to be an intriguing and beautiful object which will not only enhance the landscape but also act as a viewing point and a shelter. It is situated on the hill above Wycoller.
Panopticons (2003 – 2007) was a unique creative project created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN).

The project was set up to erect a series of 21st-century landmarks, or Panopticons (structures providing a comprehensive view), located across East Lancashire as symbols of the renaissance of the area.

The Panopticons are a unique series of 21st century landmarks, designed to attract visitors into the countryside to enjoy the stunning landscapes and wealth of attractions on offer in Pennine Lancashire. Each Panopticon is situated on a high point site commanding spectacular views, and are all within easy reach of the M65 motorway.

The four structures are: SD9339 : The Panopticon Above Wycoller, Colourfields in Blackburn(SD6729 : Panopticon-Corporation Park), SD7923 : The Halo at Top o'Slate Haslingden and SD8528 : The Singing Ringing Tree above Burnley.
