'Clougha Pike', by Andy Goldsworthy, Clougha, near Lancaster, Lancashire, UK, 29 June, 2008

Seen from the highest point in the immediate vicinity: the precarious top of a dry stone sheepfold on a spoil heap.

It seems odd to discover a totally unadvertised installation by a world-famous land artist in a location simultaneously very remote, not quite visible from the summit of Clougha Pike (413 m asl), and relatively accessible, at the crest of a gravel track used by grouse shoots. That latter point may be significant, implying that it was intended for the private enjoyment of the Duke of Westminster's shooting guests, rather than the general public.

The Lune Valley at Caton/Aughton is in the background.
