Third of four works commissioned by Knowsley Council for key outer gateway locations around Prescot, UK. Six works sited at five locations around the huge Brookebridge/M57/Liverpool Road Roundabout. The concept evolved following extensive consultation with the people of Prescot. Local schools were involved along with residents of The Watch Factory as well as local community groups. Prescot’s rich industrial heritage was an important factor in the concept design process. A strong sense of community and history is tied in with the entrepreneurial spirit of local people. A strong spirit of working together and a ‘can do’ attitude existed historically and continues into the present day. Key aspects of ‘the town of little workshops’ centre around industrial and craftsmanship that not only had world renown but impacted and affected world-wide trade and communications: watch and clock making, tool making, local coal mining, textiles, Prescot Pottery, British Insulated Wire Company/British Insulated Callander’s Cables (renamed BICC Ltd), Tinlings and Stoves to name but a few.
