Singing Ringing Tree.

The Singing Ringing Tree is part of the series of four sculptures, a unique and ambitious arts and regeneration project created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network. Four of these iconic structures are now in place in Blackburn, Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.
The Singing Ringing Tree is designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu. The 3 meter tall wind powered musical sculpture overlooking Burnley resembles a tree set and is constructed from pipes of galvanised steel, which harness the energy of the wind to produce a tune. The sculpture won (along with 13 other candidates) in 2007, the National Award of the Royal Institute of British Architects for architectural excellence.
