Sculpture at Outwood
Ulrich Ruckriem has created one of his largest stone settings on the site of the former Outwood Colliery. The complete work consists of ten large stone pieces set over a number of locations; one column marks each of the two main entrances and a group of seven tall slabs is installed on a flat plateau (SD7705 : Ulrich Ruckriem Sculpture, Outwood Country Park). This, the largest slab (25 feet in height), marks the line of the former Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway track.
