“Interesting sculpture with brilliant views”

The Singing Ringing Tree
Ranked #4 of 13 things to do in Burnley
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2018

I had expected a good hike to this sculpture, but it turns out it is only a short stony footpath away from a small car parking area. The sculpture is interesting to look at and the construction of metal tubes really does have the shape of a tree that has bent in the winds. The idea is that the wind blows through the tubes and plays tunes, but on this reasonably blowy afternoon we heard only minimal tones coming from the structure. We really enjoyed being there though, especially as (with the biting cold) there was no one else there at the time. The views across the landscape were amazing and we would definitely like to go back on a very windy day to hear it ringing and singing.

What an amazing piece of sculpture. The only problem was for once in a few months it wasn't windy at all. It would be great if it was but still a good thing to see.

Amazingly beautiful sculpture on top of the hill which makes sounds as the winds pass through the different angled pipes, surrounded by wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

I have always wanted to visit here. It was very chilly & windy so wrap up warm & take a hot drink. It was amazing & the views are stunning. It's quite easy to find. It's just a shame that this beauty was ruined by graffiti and rubbish, even though bins are provided. I'm fond of the saying "Take only photos, leave only footprints."
