A striking new sculpture which celebrates the Lake District’s newly awarded UNESCO status will feature at Lakes Alive.

Cumbrian artist Charlie Whinney's 'Mountains We Made' is created from a series of ten steam bent sections. The oak for the sculpture has been sourced from Grizedale Forest.

It has just gone on show at Brockhole - and will come to Lakes Alive on 8-10 September.  

Jointly commissioned by The Forestry Commission England, Lakes Culture and Lakes Alive, the piece is already wowing visitors at Brockhole.

During Lakes Alive it will be situated at Abbot Hall.
