A new artwork installed in Worsbrough Mill Country Park, celebrates the attraction’s long history of flour production and links to the growth of wheat and grain.
‘Colour Crops’ has been created by local artists Lenny and Whale who worked with children from Worsbrough Common Primary School during the early development stages of the project.
The early designs were based on the children’s drawings of wheat, which led to the final bold and dramatic piece that represents wheat and its significance to Worsbrough.
The artwork includes six brightly coloured carved poles that are two metres tall and can be seen close to the main courtyard of the Mill.
Councillor Robert Frost, Cabinet Spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: “Worsbrough Mill’s history is fascinating. A producer of flour using traditional methods for hundreds of years, it was important for us to celebrate this important industry and the skills that still live on through the Millers and bakers.
“This community led project has inspired local children to think about the importance of the Mill in terms of food production and how wheat is a crucial part of that process. The artwork is stunning and a real asset to the country park which continues to flourish, becoming an ever more special place to visit.”
