The Spirit of Sport
The Spirit of Sport
The Spirit of Sport is the largest piece of public art in the UK to be developed out of public consultation (it is almost a third taller than the Angel of the North). Standing at approximately 100 feet tall, the sculpture is constructed of stainless steel and has a 'golden' appearance with its surface 'tiled' with 600 etched images of sporting heroes.

The sculpture is located at a site just off junction 6 of the M61 at the junction of De Havilland Way and Burnden Way and leads near to the Reebok Stadium (home of Bolton Wanderers Football Club), the Bolton Arena and a major retail park.
